I am delighted to have the opportunity to tell you about our setting. In our Ofsted inspection of May 2015, inspectors found that all aspects of our work were outstanding.

The report highlights many areas of excellence in our school.

Overall effectiveness – Outstanding

Behaviour and safety of pupils – Outstanding
Quality of teaching – Outstanding
Achievement of pupils – Outstanding
Early years provision – Outstanding

Here are a selection of the comments they made about our setting:
- The school’s outstanding improvement since the last inspection is due to the exceptionally skilled Headteacher and very effective school leaders who have secured high-quality teaching throughout the school.
- In English and mathematics, pupils have made outstanding progress in the last two years.
- Much of the teaching is outstanding in all years.
- Greatly improved teaching and highly effective training for all staff have led to sharply improved rates of progress and much higher attainment for all groups of pupils.
- Leaders, governors and staff have secured excellence in nearly every aspect of the school’s work since the previous inspection.
- Governors are extremely well informed about all aspects the school’s work.
- Pupils’ behaviour is excellent. They are polite, caring and courteous and their strong attitudes to learning ensure they make outstanding progress. Pupils say the feel very safe and that they are very well cared for.
- The exciting curriculum and many enrichment opportunities on offer ensure that pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development flourish in this school.
- Children in the early years learn exceptionally well because of the excellent teaching and support they receive. The well-resourced, vibrant and stimulating environment ensure children are productively occupied and learning at all times.

We pride ourselves on the fact that we are a successful school and that, even though it is large, it has a friendly community approach and atmosphere. Children in our school achieve at a level that is consistently higher than that found nationally. We have worked very hard to ensure that children realise their potential academically, personally and physically. As a staff we recognise the vital part we play in this success and will continue to better ourselves to ensure standards improve still further.
