Whilst it has been some time since our last Ofsted inspection, the school is very proactive in seeking regular external endorsements of its practice.
The Local Authority Improvement Advisers visit several times a year and give feedback on a variety of information including teaching and learning, safeguarding, curriculum and leadership.
The school also invites other head teachers and senior leaders from the Coastal Alliance Cooperative Trust (CACoT) to work alongside leaders to carry out school-to-school reviews. The most recent of these have been in SEND, the learning environment, Pupil Premium and in the teaching and learning of core subjects.
We also moderate our practice by achieving external acknowledgement through awards such as the Basic Skills Quality Mark, Governor Mark and School Games Active Mark.
