'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.

Gardening Club - April 2015

Gardening Club got off to a great start.  The sun was shining and the children had a fantastic time planting a variety of seeds, emptying the Ridan food composter, (all their fruit waste), and transferring it to the hotbox to decompose into lovely compost for the garden and they even had time for pond dipping.

Class One visit Prickly Ball Farm - April 2015

Today Class One visited Prickly Ball Farm as the start to their topic on Nocturnal Animals.  The children were able to meet James the Hedgehog who was a resident at the Hedgehog Hospital.  James had been found wandering around in November and the person that rescued him knew that he was underweight and would not have survived hibernation so brought him to Prickly Ball farm, (just Like Connor and Mrs Cupper when they rescued Diddi and Doddi a few years a go).  The children learnt lots of very interesting facts about hedgehogs such as; they have between 5,000 and 7,000 spines;
