We had an Ofsted Inspection in July 2017, we are delighted that the School still continues to be rated as "Good".
Here are a few highlights from the Report:
The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You and your team have continued to provide excellent care for your pupils’ well-being. This is appreciated by pupils and highly valued by parents. Your personal commitment to the pupils, parents and staff has made a significant contribution to the success of the school. You have a deep knowledge of the pupils, the staff and the curriculum. You use this very effectively to get the best out of each of them.
Parents are overwhelmingly supportive of the school and agree that their children are safe, happy and well looked after. Parents’ views were summed up by one who described Cumberland as ‘a truly wonderful school’. As a result of the care and support they receive, pupils are confident learners who demonstrate very positive attitudes to learning. This was evident in the pupils’ engagement in the dance and sports activities seen during the inspection. It can also been seen in the work pupils completed during the year.
The school is characterised by the commitment of you and your team to get things right for your pupils. Alongside governors and other leaders, you have taken effective action to maintain and build on the strengths identified in the last inspection.
Together, you have addressed the recommendations to improve the quality of teaching and develop the role of middle leaders. As a result, outcomes for pupils remain good. In the Reception class, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils achieve levels that are at least in line with national averages and sometimes better than this. In addition, an increasing number of pupils are now making more than expected progress.
