Please find a copy of our latest Ofsted report in the Information section. We are extremely proud to say that within the report, it states that: ‘There is a strong team ethos across the school. Governors and staff are committed to seeing the school improve, and parents are appreciative of how the leadership and staff support their children. Pupil’s grow in knowledge and understanding through a well-balanced curriculum with a strong focus to improve basic skills. Teaching is effective across the school and successfully supports children with all abilities.’
One parent wrote: “My child enjoys going to school and is being looked after. If I have any worries, I speak to the teachers.”

Supporting Your Child to Read & Write
We use Jolly Phonics to teach our EYFS and KS1 pupils phonics.
Underpinning our teaching of writing at all of our HMFA schools is the fantastic ‘Talk for Writing’ approach, pioneered by educational consultant, Pie Corbett. This process enables children to take part in drama, speaking and listening, and exciting activities as a precursor to writing. High quality writing is modelled to children and they plan and edit their writing until they have produced work they can be proud of. The ‘Talk for Writing’ approach ensures that we support children and show them how to write; we have high expectations of children and challenge them to do their best; and that children take ownership of their writing and make good progress.
