Inspection Reports

The Governors and Head Teacher are extremely proud of the successful history of the school. The current Head Teacher, Ms Lennon, led the school through her first Ofsted inspection in November 2000 following her appointment in September 2000. The reporting inspector was Mr Peter Kemble and it was a ‘Good’ report indicating the school was on an upward journey. The school was next inspected in 2006 by reporting inspector Mrs Margot D’Arcy and was awarded the new top Ofsted grading of Outstanding. In 2009 the school was inspected and awarded Good, the reporting inspector was Colin Smith. In 2011 Ofsted re-visited the school and an inspection was led by HMI Mark Williams. The school was once again awarded the top grade of Outstanding. The school’s most recent inspection took place in September 2023 under the new inspection framework and was awarded Good.

During this period from 2000, the Head Teacher has also led the school through six section 48 religious inspections. Under Ms Lennon’s leadership, the school was first inspected for the standards in Religious Education in 2004. The school received a very good report with no key areas for improvement. In 2006 the school received a Good report. In 2009 the school was awarded the new top grade of Outstanding for its work and standards. The school was inspected again in 2012 and 2017 and awarded Outstanding for a second and third time. In 2024 the school underwent the most recent religious inspection and the Governors and Head Teacher were once again delighted to receive a report grading the school Outstanding.

In addition to inspection reports since 2000, under Miss Lennon’s leadership the school has achieved many external accreditations for their work including to name just a few, Investors in People, Leading Parent Partnership Award, Basic Skills Quality Mark, numerous PE awards including the Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity Quality Mark 2023-26, inclusion awards, multiple music and arts awards including being awarded ‘Matilda School’ status and many others.

The Head Teacher is extremely proud of the success of the school since 2000 under her leadership. The dedication and commitment to drive up standards at the school have ensured the school has continued to improve. Since 2000 many projects and developments have been initiated and seen through to fruition and the school continues to go from strength to strength. During her leadership time at the school, she has secured stability in staffing and has been very well supported by a talented, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic school team. A number of staff have journeyed with Ms Lennon throughout her leadership.
