We are delighted with our most recent Ofsted report. We are now judged to be a good school.  The   report   highlights   that   the   children   respect   and   understand   the   distinctly   Christian   values   which   are   at   the   heart   of   our   school   family.   Qualities   such   as forgiveness   and   patience,   alongside   the   ability   to   share   and   listen,   show   that   they   are   able   to   ‘love   one   another   as   I   have   loved   you,’   which   is   the   foundation statement of the gospel values we share. Improvements   in   teaching   have   made   children   ‘effusive’   about   their   learning.   They   say   that   ‘teachers   organise   their   lessons   so   that   they   are   fun,   creative,   and always   introducing   new   challenges.’   They   are   developing   the   habits   and   mindsets   of   good   learners;   being   ‘industrious’   in   lessons   and   ‘taking   responsibility’   for their learning by stretching themselves  to tackle problems without giving up. This   reflects   the   passion   all   of   our   teachers   and   TAs   share   -   to   build   the   children’s   learning   capacity   so   that   they   grow   into   confident,   independent   learners   who are curious, resilient and able to cope with the challenges of a rapidly changing world.​
