School goes top of class
STAFF, children and parents are celebrating after making huge improvements and rising to the top of the class following their latest Ofsted inspection.
The school was classed as good overall and “outstanding” in terms of behaviour and safety of pupils.
Headteacher Jonathan Swain, who has been at the school for 11 years, said he had overseen four inspections and the school continued to improve.
He added: “The findings of the most current inspection, carried out just before Christmas, are fantastic. The inspection before this when Ofsted visited us we were classed as satisfactory overall, which followed two previous inspections where we were again classed as good overall.
“We try to provide an environment that benefits everyone and I believe we achieve this. The body of the report is very positive and highlights many of the good aspects of the school and I think everyone is pleased with the findings.”
The report says the school is a happy one where pupils enjoy their learning and are well prepared for the next stage in their education and future lives.
It also says pupils’ behaviour was outstanding with the older children working in partnership with school leaders to set the standards for exemplary behaviour. It went on to say the children were eager to learn and try their very best to succeed.
Achievement was classed as good with pupils making good progress through the school. As a result they were said to reach above average standards in English and mathematics by the end of year six.
Mr Swain added: “Morale is very high at the moment. As the inspectors observed teaching in school they recorded a significant proportion of it as outstanding. Ofsted seem to keep raising the bar when it comes to their reports but the outstanding staff, governors, parents and children always seem to rise to meet the challenge.”
In summing up Ofsted said pupils made good progress in the early years foundation stage as they were well supported and guided in their learning and overall the school was good in all areas.
Mr Swain further added: “We don’t intend to rest and we shall continue to work hard and to make improvements in all areas.”
