Ofsted and SIAMS Reports
We were inspected under a section 5 Ofsted inspection on the 29th and 30th January 2019, where the school was judged to be good in all areas. We were delighted that Ofsted could recognise that we have made significant improvements to the curriculum and that the children enjoyed their learning, 'The new curriculum design has improved the breadth and depth of the curriculum. Pupils take an active part in their learning.' Ofsted Jan 2019.
We were also delighted that we had recognition for the improving attainment at Overthorpe in recent years, this has continued to improve following the inspection alongside the progress children have made from their starting points.
The quality of teaching and learning continues to be strong across school and our support for the personal development of our children is excellent.
'The school's work to promote pupils' personal development and welfare is good. Central to this are the positive relationships that are fostered between staff and pupils and the caring and nurturing ethos that staff have established.' Ofsted Jan 2019.
We continue to strive to improve the school and have reflected on our areas for development from the Ofsted inspection and incorperated these into our school development plan for this next academic year.
