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.
The School Council have had their second meeting of the school year. Click on the link below to read the minutes from this meeting.

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.

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!)

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!

The second Big Write task of the year is now on the website. The children will need to gather information about themselves so that they can write a letter during the Big Write session on Friday. The finished letters will then be sent to the pupils of our partner school in Malawi. The children do not need to write the letter at home - this will be done at school - but they will need to write notes to help them with the task. They should rehearse the letter orally with an adult at home as part of the homework. Please click on the link below to
