Ofsted Short Inspection Report 2017
“The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.”
“The warm and caring atmosphere ensures that pupils feel very safe. Older pupils look after younger pupils, for example, through organising play activities at break and lunchtimes. They also provide leadership through the school council and eco council and as junior road safety officers. Pupils enjoy coming to school and this is reflected in their high levels of attendance.”
“The curriculum has been greatly enriched. Lively and interesting activities promote pupils’ high levels of engagement.”
“You place a strong emphasis on developing pupils’ physical and mental well-being.”
“Sport is an important part of day-to-day life in school. You are right to be proud of the Sportsmark Gold award achieved as a result.”
“Parents are effusive in their praise for all aspects of the school, including the leadership of the headteacher.”
“The small size of the school means that teachers know all pupils very well and plan work to meet their individual needs within the mixed-age classes.”
Children need to achieve a scaled score of 100 in the reading, mathematics and spelling, punctuation and grammar tests to achieve the expected standard. A high score is a scaled score of 110 or more. The reading, writing and mathematics combined measure consists of children achieving the 100+ scaled score in mathematics and reading and being teacher assessed at the expected standard for writing.
Individual pupil progress scores are calculated in comparison to other pupils nationally. For all mainstream pupils nationally, the average progress score was zero. A school’s progress score for individual subjects will be presented as positive and negative numbers either side of zero.
A score of zero means pupils in this school, on average, do about as well at key stage 2 as those with similar prior attainment nationally. A positive score means pupils in this school on average do better at Key Stage 2 than those with similar prior attainment nationally. A negative score does not mean that pupils did not make any progress between Key Stages 1 and 2. A negative score means that they made less progress than other pupils nationally with similar prior attainment.
