'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.

Fred the frog frolicking in his fabulous new habitat

On Thursday Amos and Inigo arrived at school with a frog that their cat had brought in!  They decided to bring the frog to school so that he could find a new home in the school pond.  After all the children had carefully observed the frog in its container Class One set it free in the school pond.  The children decided to name it Fred the Frog.  Class One are hoping that we will see some of its tadpoles in the Spring.

Exciting new addition

Class One has had an exciting new addition over half term!  The covered area has been transformed to give a new learning space that is accessible from Class One due to the addition of doors.  This will enable the children to flow between the indoor and outdoor environment providing a rich opportunity for play and learning on a grander scale and provide space for a growing class.

KS2 Trip to Dawlish Warren, February 2015

The KS2 children chose a lovely, sunny day for their fieldtrip to Dawlish Warren Nature Reserve.  This trip was part of their geography topic about Climate Change and the Exe Estuary where they were able to see, at first hand, the various features they have been learning about.  They spent time on the beach moving like sand-grains along the coast by longshore drift, they experimented with different types of sea defences in front of of their sand castles and they went foraging for sea shells.  Back at the Visitors' Centre, they looked at the rare plants and animals that li
