'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
well.
· Teaching is consistently good with some that is outstanding.
· Teachers have high expectations and pupils respond to these by working hard.

Henri Matisse - The Snail

This half term the children in Class One have been learning about Henri Matisse and have focussed on his work, 'The Snail'.  The children all created their own version of 'The Snail' and then had a go at using this technique to create an owl.

Goodbye Mrs Coates, May 2015

After six years of running Doddi Pre-School, Ann Coates is leaving for a new job closer to her family.  She has done a fantastic job of preparing the youngest children for their school life and will be missed by all the children, parents and staff.  The school held a special tea party where some of the pre-school children presented her with cards and presents to say thank you for all her hard work.

Code Cracking for Year 5s at Exeter School, May 2015

Two Year 5 pupils, Fleur and Jonny, spent an exciting morning at Exeter School learning about various codes such as Morse and Pigpen Cipher, and how to crack them.  They had to break lots of different codes revealing mathematical questions.  They had a great morning, which ended with them trying to decode a top secret message for the Ministry of Defence!

Jamie Oliver Food Revolution Day, May 2015

Each year, at the end of SATs week, we take part in Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day where all the children in KS2 make a tasty meal out of natural ingredients.  This year they made squash it sandwiches which involved lots of chopping, mixing and bashing with rolling pins!  The result was a delicious sandwich which they took home to share with their families.

Year 6 complete their SATs, May 2015!

The Year 6 pupils worked incredibly hard during SATs week to complete their assessment tests and were rewarded with a treat of ice-cream (which they kindly shared with the rest of the school!)  What a happy bunch they are (Teo was unfortunately away when this photo was taken).
