Parent View gives you the chance to see reviews from other parents. It also gives you the opportunity to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected. You can do so by clicking the parents view link below: 



Ofsted report Feb 2018 ‘All staff have the very highest expectations of what children can achieve. As one member of staff said, ‘We don’t see children as empty vessels, we see them as future scientists or musicians.’ An extremely rich learning environment supports children’s learning’: ‘Children are immersed in exciting learning which supports the exceptional progress they make.’ ‘Staff’s knowledge and understanding of every child’s individual learning needs are quite exceptional. They use what they know about what children can do and plan meticulously to take children’s learning forward at pace. Children show a high level of sustained concentration in all their learning activities, a level way beyond their years. This is because staff match stimulating learning activities so well to their needs. Staff inspire a true love of learning in every child.’ ‘Staff respond instantaneously to children’s learning, providing both support and challenge of the very best quality. Staff are highly skilled at using questions to encourage children to think and find things out for themselves. No minute of learning is lost.’
