 Our last OfSTED inspection was in March 2011.

The OfSTED report stated that we are 'good school', we have 'high standards of behaviour' and commended us on our 'caring family atmosphere'. The report also stated 'children make a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They enter Year 1 with better than expected levels of attainment. In Years 1 to 6, this good start is fostered well by generally good levels of teaching so that by the time they leave, pupils' attainment is above average and their progress is good.'

No wonder we are so proud of our school!

Would you like to see some of our other recent achievements?

Please feel free to contact the school with any queries you may have.  Our contact details are on the left side of this page.

Thank you for visiting!
