Ofsted

Cabot Primary School  had an Ofsted inspection from 28th - 29th January 2015, where we were judged 'good'. The full report is published on the Ofsted website and you can view it  by clicking here. As part of the visit, lessons and parts of lessons were observed, pupils were observed during assembly, registration, break and lunchtimes. Samples of their work were also inspected. We have included some quotes from the full report below:

"The quality of teaching throughout the school is good, and some is outstanding."

"His deputy headteacher and middle leaders support him very well. Working together, they have successfully improved teaching, pupils' behaviour and achievement."

Early Years Provision

"Children feel safe at school. They know that members of staff will take good care of them. Behaviour in Reception is good."

"A strong feature of the provision is good teamwork, and constructive links have been made with the children's parents. Children's learning is checked frequently and staff have detailed discussions with parents about how well their children are doing."
