Headteacher's comments to Ofsted Report - November 2022
We are pleased to confirm that Ofsted has judged that we remain a good school. We were inspected under Section 8, which means that Ofsted were checking to see if we remain a good school, which they felt we did.
The report is very positive and we are delighted that the ethos of our school comes across so clearly in many of the comments and observations the inspector made. The inspector describes our school as a friendly and welcoming place to learn where children feel happy and safe. Pupils told the inspector that they know why it is important to respect the beliefs and views of others. The report states that leaders are ambitious for pupils with special educational needs and that they have a clear and ambitious vision to provide high quality education for all.
We would like to thank our fantastic team of staff and governors who work so hard and whose commitment to the school was acknowedged in the report. Our pupils were also fantastic throughout the inspection and we are very proud of them. Thank you also to all parents for the excellent feedback received via Ofsted ParentView during the inspection. It was a real team effort and a result that our whole school community should be proud of.

Performance Information & Reports
There is no requirement for schools to publish their Key Stage 2 (end of primary school) results for the academic year 2021 to 2022 on their website, as the Secretary of State will not publish this data. This is because statutory assessments returned for the first time this year, since 2019, without adaptations, after disruption caused by the pandemic. The government have archived data from the 2018 to 2019 academic year, because they recognise that the data from that year may no longer reflect current performance.
We are displaying our 2021-22 key stage 2 performance measures on our website (see below). Before that, our last set of KS2 data was for the 2016-17 academic year. After that we were transitioning from a middle school (for children aged 9-13) to a primary school, so we did not have year 6 pupils and subsequently, KS2 SATs were suspended, due to the pandemic.
For further information, please see the DfE Performance Tables website.
