For over ten years, we have been rated 'good' by Ofsted.

'Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school. Those parents who spoke to the inspectors expressed how happy and safe their children were. They value greatly the approachability and support of staff, when they need to ask questions or share concerns. Parents welcome the many activities available for their children to access.' (Ofsted)

As a result, the next full inspection will not take place any earlier than the summer term 2013 unless we receive information in the course of the coming year that causes us to inspect earlier.’
