Overall Rating for Early Years: Predominantly Outstanding with some Very Good elements

What the KHDA says: "In English, most children attain levels which are at least in line with the curriculum standards, with a large majority achieving beyond these standards. Children listen very carefully to stories. They recognise letters and their sounds and can write simple words. By FS2, most children write lists and sentences and enjoy reading picture books. Almost all make very good progress from their starting points and against the expected learning goals in lessons. Children with SEND make good progress in class and against their individual targets.”

“In mathematics, most children attain in line with or above expected curriculum standards. They gain skills in numeracy and manipulate numbers with increasing confidence. Most recognise shapes and enjoy measuring in their play. In FS2, they can add one and two digit numbers accurately. From their start in the FS, most children make better than expected progress. In lessons, almost all achieve well against their different learning goals. With support, children with SEND make good progress in their individual targets.”

“In science, almost all children attain very high standards against the FS curriculum for understanding the world. They are particularly skilled in making predictions and exploring. For example, FS1 children find out how chocolate changes from solid to liquid and back again. FS2 children mix ingredients, observe and record the changes scientifically. Most children, including those with SEND, make outstanding progress from their starting points and against the learning objectives in lessons.”
