2015 Inspection

Inspection Summary

‘The school’s recent focus on developing further the children’s skills of leadership, responsibility, resilience and team working through well-planned engaging activities has ensured that the children’s attainment in literacy and numeracy is of a consistently high standard. The children communicate confidently and competently with each other and with adults.’

2018 Inspection

Inspection Summary

ETI were delighted to see such a warm friendly caring school. The Reporting Inspector, Mr Blevins, commented on ‘how well the school works to build pupil self-esteem’

Due to on-going Industrial Action (short of strike) as evidenced in most schools in the province, ETI were not able to complete a full inspection and hence their report notes this. However Mr Blevins was confident that the Safeguarding practice which he observed would be reflected in the classrooms.

They commented on how the pupils feel happy and safe in school and on the leadership roles the children held and how the children felt confident in these.
