Pupils do exceptionally well at this school, in terms of both their academic and personal development.

Leaders, including governors, are relentless in their ambition to make this school the best it can be.

The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning. They work hard at all times and persevere with tasks that are frequently challenging.

The warm, mutually supportive relationships that staff and pupils have with each other make this a very caring, nurturing school.

Provision in the Early Years is outstanding. Children make rapid and sustained progress due to excellent teaching and imaginative activities.

The curriculum is excellent. It promotes a real love for learning in pupils, as they have many opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills within a real-life context.

Years 3 & 4

Literacy

In Years 3 & 4 we have selected a wonderful range of children’s books to enhance the children’s pleasure in reading and to teach literacy creatively. We use lots of strategies to support writing, including: discussion, drama, role play, reading aloud and oral story-telling. Children learn how to organise their ideas and writing and how to use an increasingly varied vocabulary to make their writing interesting.  

Maths

In Years 3 & 4 children solve increasingly complex number problems. They use all four mathematical operations (+ - x ÷) and are encouraged to talk about their methods and their solutions. By the end of Year 4 children are expected to know all of their times tables up to 12x.
