We are extremely proud to have been judged as good at our most recent Ofsted inspection (31st January 2017) with the following comments in our report:

‘High staff expectations, a nurturing atmosphere and responsible roles around school effectively develop pupils’ personal and social skills. As a result, pupils’ behaviour in lessons and at playtimes is exemplary. Pupils work hard, are kind and supportive to their peers and display good manners.’

‘Levels of parental satisfaction with the school are extremely high. Parents’ responses to Parent View, Ofsted’s online survey, and in the comments made to the inspector were overwhelmingly positive.’.

‘You, your leaders and governors make good use of the opportunities that the school’s federation with Whalton Church Of England Aided First School provides to develop leadership, improve the quality of teaching and widen pupils’ experiences.’

Our last Church school inspection, called SIAS, was carried out in March 2012 by an inspector from the Diocese of Newcastle. The school was judged to be outstanding with outstanding behaviour.  We were delighted that the impact of the Federation was recognised in the report. Please see the full report under the SIAS tab.
