Text from letter to pupils explaining the findings of the inspection
Thank you for welcoming Mr Peacock and me to your school. We enjoyed our discussions and the two days we spent with you. We particularly enjoyed attending your school council meeting and were very impressed with your contributions and how you are trying to improve the school.
As promised, we want to tell you what we thought about your school. Well, we judged that your school is outstanding because the headteacher, other staff and governors lead and manage it extremely well. You are taught very well so you make fast progress in your learning. You enjoy school and work hard in lessons and all get on very well together. Your behaviour is excellent both in the classroom and around the school. Members of staff look after you exceptionally well. Your parents and carers are very pleased that you come to this school.
There is very little that needs improving at your school but we have asked it to provide more opportunities for children to extend their learning outdoors in the Foundation Stage, especially Reception. You have already suggested how the grassed areas around the school can be improved. Perhaps you have some good ideas to suggest to your headteacher on how to provide exciting learning areas for children in the Foundation Stage.
I wish you well for the future.
