“Teachers collaborate very effectively on their planning and productively share methods which work well. In these ways, the needs of different ability groups are well catered for and high standards are maintained. For example, the more able pupils are often given work designed for the age group above. This even extends to pupils in Year 6, many of whom are working on aspects of secondary school work. Teaching assistants also contribute well to the quality of pupils’ learning, particularly for those with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.”

OFSTED

“Teaching is engaging and motivating, with a wide range of strategies employed to sustain pupils’ interest and harness their involvement to best effect.”
