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 next Big Write (for 6th February) is based on the 500 Words Competition. Click on the link below to find out more!

Mr Flint, who teaches PE at Teign School, came into Doddi to work with the young playleaders. He taught them the new game for our intraschool competition that they will later teach to all the children in our school. The new game involves the throwing of a ping-pong ball into cups set out in a triangular shape at the end of a table. It sounds like it will be a lot of fun!

The whole school had an exciting trip to Plymouth to see the pantomime of Jack and the Beanstalk with Bobby Davro, Chico and Jeffrey Holland. A great time was had by all as we joined in with the silly songs, got soaked with buckets of water and were scared out of our seats by the 3D effects of spiders and bats in the giant's castle. Did we enjoy it ... oh yes, we did!
