Ofsted highlighted the strength of the school’s ambitious curriculum from the youngest learners in Little Browsers Nursery (2 and 3 years) and our Pre-School Nursery to year 6, following deep dives into reading, mathematics, art and design, history and geography plus in-depth discussions with music, computing and PE subject leads.  

They praised the knowledge and passion of all subject leads and the commitment of senior leaders in ensuring that staff have an accurate understanding of each curriculum subject.

Reading was commended across the whole school, with pupils telling inspectors that they enjoy the school’s impressive selection of fiction and non-fiction books that have been carefully sourced over the last few years. Inspectors praised the whole school with their approach to reading, beginning in nursery where children are supported in becoming familiar with lots of stories, rhymes and poems alongside effective phonics teaching.

Inspectors highlighted the opportunities that pupils are given beyond the usual curriculum subjects. The Forest School area has been developed and includes opportunities for all children from nursery upwards, to experience den making, pond dipping, camp fires and more. 

Opportunities for pupil voice form an integral part of the school, including Worship Wonders, School Parliament, Global Citizens and Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. Special events and celebration days’ support pupils in developing their awareness of different faiths and beliefs and in learning about respecting different people and communities.  The school’s inclusivity is a real strength and reflects the strong Christian ethos.

Ofsted found that safeguarding is highly effective with pupils developing a broad knowledge about how to stay safe, including the dangers of misusing social media.

Working in partnership with parents/carers is incredibly important to the school and they provide an invaluable contribution to the children’s learning.
