'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.

Off by Heart Competition, October 2014

We had our largest number of entries this year for our annual Off by Heart Competition.  29 pupils throughout the school spent time learning a poem and preparing costumes and props to put on their best performance for the very well attended event.  The children took it in turns to perform for the appreciative audience and the two specially invited judges - Nick Cupper and Sue, from the Nobody Inn.  The judges had a very tricky job trying to pick out the winners from all the entrants and ended up with many joint winners as they just couldn't decide who to pick!  The w

Doddi does The Great West Run Schools Challenge

19 fabulous runners from school ran the last mile of their Great West Run School Challenge this morning. They received a medal and goody bag for their hard work, but more importantly they finished their half marathon. Well done to all who took part. Every one ran well - what a fabulous achievement. You should all be very proud of yourself.

Harvest at Doddi School, October 2014

We celebrated Harvest with help from the Doddi Friends who provided a fantastic breakfast of croissants and pain au chocolat.  Mrs Evans' class then led the harvest assembly and told the rest of school and parents all about the Jewish festival of sukkot.  We also sang some great harvest songs including 'Big Red Combine Harvester' (our favourite!)

Neolithic Pottery Session, October 2014

Mrs McManus took the Key Stage 2 children to Teign School to work with Mrs Kay in the Art Department.  They learnt how to make Neolithic coil pots from terracotta clay.  First, they made lots of long, clay worms and a circular base.  They then coiled the worms around the base and up into a pot shape and smoothed the coils together to form a smooth surface.  Finally, they scratched geometric designs onto the outside of the pot to decorate it.  The pots will now dry and then be fired in a kiln.  They can't wait to see the finished results!
