Quality Of Education:
We have a rich, innovative curriculum which is regularly reviewed and improved. There is whole school clarity of our purpose to help all children to succeed in their academic and personal development. Through our curriculum and teaching we aim for pupils to be engaged, motivated and inspired learners. Following our OFSTED 2021, our whole school focus is on the curriculum ensuring all subjects are coherently planned and sequenced to build knowledge and skills. Schemes of work, progression grids and knowledge organisers support teachers in planning coherent learning which builds upon, revisits and extends prior learning. Subject leaders have all received recent training on the implementation and monitoring of their curriculum area.
Behaviour and Attitudes:
Our Christian values are effective in establishing a shared community of love and compassion. This underpins our aim of developing informed, articulate and empowered young people with a shared aim of working together to create a safe, happy, fair world. Children behave well, showing care for each other and the environment, this is reinforced through our curriculum focus on equality, values and care for the environment. SUMO teaching encourages our children to reflect on their decisions. Safeguarding is highly effective
The school prepares pupils positively for learning. Our curriculum is ambitious and enables children to cumulatively develop the knowledge and skills to make links across and apply their learning. Our long-term focus on developing a ‘growth mind-set’ approach means that pupils are equipped with the behaviours and attitudes necessary for success as learners. Pupils are confident, self-assured learners. Their excellent attitudes to learning have a strong, positive impact on their progress.
Leadership and Management:
The school has a highly experienced leadership team with strengths in leading change, driving ambition and ensuring high outcomes for pupil attainment and well-being. The school regularly works with TARDiS to support moderation, raise standards and share innovation. The school is committed to high quality evidence based CPD and participates in selected quality research opportunities. The impact of our high quality professional development is evident in the quality of teacher subject knowledge and pupil progress. Leaders and governors have an accurate understanding of the school’s effectiveness informed by the views of pupils, parents and staff. They use this to keep the school improving by focusing on the impact of their actions in key areas. Being a small school means staff may have multiple roles. We will continue to work together in clarifying the intent, implementation and impact of all subjects alongside supportive monitoring will have a positive impact on the quality of the curriculum and learning.
