The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the previous inspection. Based on the evidence gathered during this short inspection, I am of the opinion that the school has demonstrated strong practice and marked improvement in certain areas. This may indicate that the school is improving towards being outstanding. Therefore, I am recommending that the school’s next inspection be a section 5 inspection.
Pupils are given an interesting and stimulating educational diet, and this is helping to raise the school’s very good standards even further. For example, on the day of the inspection, pupils throughout the school took part in a ‘reptile day’. Pupils were fascinated by the interesting and unusual creatures that they saw. In the Reception class, we saw children writing enthusiastically about the snakes that they had been given the opportunity to touch.
Pupils clearly love their school. Almost all of the parents and carers who responded to Parent View, Ofsted’s online questionnaire, said that their children are happy at school. Pupils show excellent attitudes to learning and are keen to find out more about the topics that they learn about. The school provides pupils with a bright, welcoming and attractive learning environment. Pupils are given the resources they need, both to enhance their enjoyment of learning and to help them understand different concepts. Pupils’ work and achievements are celebrated throughout the school.
