Dunnington OFSTED Report 2013

Overall effectiveness of the school - Good

Key Findings:

  • Pupils achieve well and reach high standards in English and mathematics by the time they leave the school.
  • Teaching is sometimes outstanding, particularly in literacy.
  • Lessons often provide exciting and rewarding experiences for pupils. They are introduced to a wide range of literature and strongly encouraged to read widely and write creatively.
  • Attendance is consistently high. Pupils’ behaviour is exemplary. They are highly motivated to learn. They have excellent relationship with each other and with staff.
  • Parents and carers and pupils strongly agree that the school keeps pupils safe. Pupils know how to keep themselves safe and say that bullying is not tolerated.
  • The headteacher has built a dynamic leadership team in which all individuals feel confident in contributing ideas for school improvement. This has re-vitalised the work of the school.
  • Provision for pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is good. The school is particularly effective at fostering pupils' self-confidence.
  • The governing body acts effectively as a critical friend to the school. Governors help to foster ambition and strongly support the headteacher in expanding learning opportunities for pupils and raising the quality of teaching.
