Governors and staff are very pleased with the overall judgement after our Ofsted inspection: “This school continues to be good” – a judgement we have maintained for 7 years under increasingly more challenging inspection frameworks.
Ofsted's description of a good school includes these characteristics:
- Teachers use their secure subject knowledge to plan learning that sustains pupils’ interest and challenges their thinking.
- Teachers expect and encourage all pupils to work with positive attitudes so that they can apply themselves and make strong progress.
- Teachers identify and support effectively those pupils who start to fall behind and intervene quickly to help them to improve their learning.
- Pupils develop the capacity to learn from mistakes and they become keen learners who want to find out more. Most are willing to find out new information to develop, consolidate and deepen their knowledge, understanding and skills, both in lessons and in extra-curricular activities.
