Improvement and Inspection
Primary schools are inspected by Ofsted in line with the current Inspection Framework. You can access our latest Ofsted report here.
We also have a range targets and improvements that we endeavour to meet, some set by the Government and some decided internally. More information on these can be found below.
We greatly value the opinions of all parents and carers at the school and ask all that can to contribute to Parent View. Please use the link below to access the Parent View site.
We have set targets for school improvement which can be accessed via the link below.
We have a robust system of self-evaluation where we analyse our progress and identify areas for development. We have set targets based on this evaluation.
These targets are related to our School Development Plan, which can also be accessed via the link below.
Basic Skills Quality Mark
The Quality Mark is an award that celebrates and supports continuous improvement in literacy and numeracy. It is awarded to a setting or school to recognise their provision, practice and performance in literacy and numeracy, and is valid for three years. A school or setting must demonstrate a whole school approach to improving standards in literacy and numeracy, with evidence of the impact of its approaches.
It provides a framework for self-evaluation and continuous improvement of the basic skills of all pupils in a school, including those who underachieve and those who underattain. More information about the Quality Mark can be found here. You can read the Quality Mark report about our school by downloading it below.
Most primary schools are inspected approximately every three years. The team of inspectors spends no longer than two days in the school gathering evidence, including observing lessons and speaking to teachers and pupils, to report on how well the school is performing. A school normally receives half a days notice of its inspection.
Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
We are pleased to have been judged to be a "Good School" in our most recent report in June 2014 which can be accessed here.
