The report praised the nurturing, welcoming ethos, and the strong support of parents, specialist teachers and community partners, which helped enrich and add value to the children’s learning experiences.

The reported also highlighted the successful approaches to teaching children about the skills they will need for life beyond school and the world of work.

Areas for improvement included the need to continue to develop approaches to assessment and moderation of children’s attainment to ensure that higher achieving children across the nursery and school are challenged to make the best possible progress.

The report concluded: “We are confident that the school has the capacity to continue to improve and so we will make no more visits in connection with this inspection.”
