Ofsted May 2019 – what the inspector said about our school
Pupils achieve well, and their behaviour is good. The school is safe, happy and inclusive.
Pupils are full of excitement as they play and learn together.
The school shows a strong commitment to learning outside. The school’s wildlife garden is well used.
Pupils enjoy visits within the local area and beyond. These experiences are effective in promoting pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding.
The culture of safeguarding is firmly established. The pupils I spoke to all said that they feel safe in school. Leaders and staff undertake regular training to keep up to date with procedures to keep pupils safe. Governors are knowledgeable about safeguarding.
Pupils learn how to manage risks and keep themselves safe, including through the range of physically challenging activities on offer. For example, they learn how to use tools safely in forest school sessions.
Leaders have developed a comprehensive range of interventions to help pupils overcome barriers to their learning. Pupils were highly engaged in a range of activities.
