Our latest Ofsted school inspection was in March 2014.
We were judged to be a GOOD school.
The following were some of the highlights of the report.
- The quality of teaching, pupils progress and their achievement, have all improved well since the previous inspection.
- Teaching is good and there is an increasing proportion that is outstanding.

- An increasing number (of pupils) make outstanding progress, notably in mathematics in Year 6.
- Teaching assistants are very well trained.
- Pupils’ behaviour is consistently good in lessons and it is sometimes outstanding.
- Pastoral care is excellent.
- Leadership and governance are ambitious.
