Rating all areas of the school as good, the report commends executive head teacher Anne Senior’s “strong and effective leadership” which ensured the school had “continued to improve” since joining the Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust (DEMAT) in 2015.
The lead inspector said the leadership team at the school had maintained the good quality of education since its previous inspection, and recognised the opportunities facilitated through the strong partnership with its sister school Anthony Curton, at Walpole St Peter.
“You have developed a strong leadership team that plays a full part in securing improvement” the report adds. “Morale is high and staff say they are proud to be members of this school’.
“Your aspirations for this small village school are shared by everyone. You, your senior leaders, staff and governors have created an environment in which every child feels valued” said the inspector’s report.
“The inspector found pupils were happy in school, behaved well, enjoyed their learning and worked with diligence and enthusiasm”.
The report highlighted the way the school had improved the skills of leaders, teachers and teaching assistants through quality training and sharing best practice across the partnership.
It also praised the culture of effective safeguarding at the school, stating “the caring and attentive culture which runs through the school and the trust that pupils have in all staff ensures that pupils are safe and always feel secure”.
To further improve, the reports states that new approaches in reading, writing and maths would improve pupils’ attainment and progress.
Executive headteacher Anne Senior said: “We are all very pleased with such a positive report. It confirmed the school’s own judgements, and reflects the high quality provision offered to our children by dedicated staff and stakeholders.”
