Here is a link to our latest OFSTED report (inspected 06/03/2013)
The way in which Ofsted inspect and grade schools has changed dramatically since 2008 with the standards becoming more rigorous each time. Ofsted have ‘raised the bar’ and this increased rigour has been reflected in the judgements Ofsted have made about us, as well as other schools locally and nationally, since the introduction of the new Ofsted framework in September 2012. It is anticipated that these changes could make it more difficult for schools to continue to meet the expectations required of them.
The governors, staff and I have fully recognised, through our own self-evaluation, the need to improve standards in teaching and learning, writing and mathematics and actions to date have already prioritised these areas.
28th March 2011 OFSTED interim assessment results.
In May 2008 Ofsted inspectors judged this school to be good. Schools which are performing well are now inspected less often than other schools. This usually means that good schools are inspected once in five years. To help decide whether a school can wait longer than three years before a full inspection Ofsted considered the following:
- pupils’academic performance
- pupils attendance
- any inspection visits carried out by Ofsted since the last routine inspection
- qualifying complaints about the school by parents or carers
- any other significant concerns brought to Ofsted’s attention.
This interim assessment showed that the school’s performance has been sustained and that the next full inspection can be deferred until at least Summer 2012.
