“The pupils make good progress over the course of their time at the school. Their
progress in writing by the end of key stage 2 is exceptionally strong. You lay good
foundations for this in the early years, where the children also make good progress
with their writing.” Ofsted Report, March 2018
“You have developed the quality of teaching, learning and assessment by looking at
research and providing training and professional development opportunities for the
staff. You have introduced an approach to teaching all subjects that emphasises
ensuring that the pupils have understood fully the key learning, before they are
moved on to the next piece of learning.” Ofsted Report, March 2018
“I saw many examples of very good writing produced by the pupils. The pupils write
often in detail and at length. Their writing is uniformly presented to a high standard.
It shows great care and pride and demonstrates how successful the teachers have
been in getting the pupils interested in writing.” Ofsted Report, March 2018

Changes are afoot in our EYFS unit! We are excited to announce that from September, we will have a separate nursery alongside two smaller Reception classes. We have had so much interest in nursery places this year that we have not been able to accommodate everyone’s wishes for extra hours or morning vs afternoon sessions. This has resulted in disappointment for some families and in other families being unable to attend our nursery as planned. A designated nursery class from September will allow us to offer a mix of full and part time places, up to about 12 full time and 28 part time.
