Coleridge is rated as an Outstanding school by Ofsted.
This is what they had to say about us on their last visit:
- Leaders are continuously searching for ways to improve the school. They are not complacent about its successes and strive to maintain the highest quality of teaching and provision for all pupils.
- Improving teaching and learning is at the forefront of the work of leaders at all levels. The school has a tradition of training and developing its teachers and leaders very successfully. This has led to stable staffing as the school has expanded.
- Governors work closely with school leaders to maintain the highest possible standards. Their questions are thoughtful and incisive. This reflects a common understanding of the school’s qualities and ambitions for its future.
- Consistently challenging teaching is a major factor in the pupils’ rapid learning of new skills.
- Pupils make rapid and sustained progress across the school. Their attainment in reading, writing and mathematics is high by the end of Year 6.
- Children greatly enjoy their experiences in the early years. Their progress is rapid because of the high quality teaching that focuses sharply on their needs in a stimulating and exciting environment.
- The curriculum is creatively planned, vibrant and exciting. Art is a major strength as seen in displays of the pupils’ work throughout the school.
- Pupils and staff live the school’s values in all that they do. This underscores the promotion of all aspects of the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development as well as helping them to have a very clear understanding of their place in modern Britain.
- The pupils’ behaviour in lessons and at other times is exemplary. Both sites exude a very harmonious and calm atmosphere at all times.
- Pupils demonstrate a genuine desire and visible enthusiasm for learning. Their learning benefits considerably from their attentiveness and their thoughtful responses to questions.
- Pupils feel very happy, safe and secure in school. They know all staff have their well-being as the highest priority.
- School leaders and governors carefully check the school’s performance and use the information gathered to plan annually for its improvement.
