Inspection Reports


We are thrilled to publish the report from our recent OFSTED inspection (Oct-Nov 2023). The overall judgement is that the school continues to be a GOOD school, however we are delighted that the school has been rated Outstanding in three grading areas: Behaviour and Attitudes, Personal Development and Early Years Provision.

These outcomes are a significant achievement and are testament to the collective hard work and effort of the whole school community.  We remain firmly committed to continuing to provide a high-quality education to all our children.
