“Pupils make excellent progress from their low starting points as attainment on entry in EYFS is lower than age related expectations in all areas and a large group (68%) are at the early stages of language development. This has been highlighted by monitoring visits from the DFE that the schools’ curriculum and language development and progression is one of our most innovative areas especially with the use of technology and strategies to excel learning and feedback given digitally to support next steps. “ Ofsted 2017
The vision for the school is one where a respect for excellence in learning pervades all aspects of school life. The school climate is one of high expectation and aspiration for each child. High levels of support for the individual is matched with appropriate challenge to ensure that every pupil maximises their attainment at the school. Our pupils will develop into confident individuals, responsible citizens and successful learners.
There is no compromise on standards, especially in those areas of school experience that equip our pupils for successful lifelong learning.
Our aim is to achieve this in a fully inclusive atmosphere where the abilities and barriers faced by all pupils are identified on entry to the school and quickly addressed. Relations between pupils and staff are characterised by respect for the needs of others and a willingness to help others to overcome barriers to learning that they may encounter.
The school was rated as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas by Ofsted in July 2015.
“The school have started fully implementing technology to enhance feedback given to children using Showbie and the planning systems of iTunes U. Showbie will reduce planning time, photocopying output and involves the pupils more in their learning and progression. “ Ofsted 2017
