'Pupils make good and sometimes outstanding progress because they are taught well.' Read how good Doddi School is in our latest Ofsted report

Our recent Ofsted inspection was on the 24th and 25th September 2013. We were
visited by one inspector for the two days, who watched lessons, looked at our attainment
data and spoke with staff, pupils and parents. He judged the school to be good with the
behaviour and safety of pupils being outstanding. We feel his report is very positive and
acknowledges many of the good things we do as a school. Some of his comments were;
· Pupils make good and sometimes outstanding progress because they are taught
· Teaching is consistently good with some that is outstanding.
· Teachers have high expectations and pupils respond to these by working hard.

Spring Term Indie Project Winners, March 2015

The KS2 children have been working very hard to make their own projects about space.  They have researched into many different aspects of the subject ranging from individual planets and moons through to the ISS.  The children shared their projects with one another in small groups and the winners from each group then presented their project to the rest of the class.  Everyone then voted for the most interesting and well-researched project.  This term, Matty and Izzy were joint second-place and Sam C was the overall winner.  Well done to everyone for working so hard.<

The Doddi Solar Eclipse, March 2015

We had been eagerly awaiting the solar eclipse!  We had discovered what causes a solar eclipse and how we could view it safely, and had even made some special pinhole projection cards.  However, on the actual day it looked like we were only going to be able to see the eclipse by watching it on the TV in the hall.  Suddenly, Matty (who had been taking temperature measurements during the event) told us that the sun was visible through the gaps in the clouds.  The whole school came out onto the playground to see, in the sky, the solar eclipse happening before our very

Red Nose Day at Doddi, March 2015

Red Nose Day at Doddi was packed full of exciting things.  Firstly, everyone in school made their faces 'funny for money' - some of the children really went to town to make their faces look like the red noses that are currently on sale!  We also had a special assembly to say goodbye to our two University of Exeter students, Miss Cameron and Mr Del Greco, who have been working with the KS2 pupils.  They have done such a good job whilst they have been here and you can see from the photograph that they will be missed!  Last, but not least, was the Mothers'
