Earlier in 2016, our school was graded 'good' by Ofsted. You can read the report by clicking this link.
The quality of teaching over time in the early years and Key Stage 1 is good and, as a result, the standards pupils reach in reading, writing and mathematics have improved since the last inspection and are above average in all subjects.
A major reason for the successful teaching is the extremely positive relationships between teachers and pupils and between pupils themselves. This results in pupils being eager to excel and receive praise for working hard and for behaving well. This is the norm at Eastrop.
Governors have a thorough understanding of school effectiveness. They know which areas are strong and where improvements can be made. They support and challenge leaders very well.
The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is good and is rooted in its emphasis on the school’s aims. The school community successfully meets its vision for learning to be exciting and for pupils to be enquiring, always doing their best, and becoming superstars of the future. It was evident that teachers are indeed caring and helpful and rules do keep everyone safe. There are many opportunities to make new friends and everyone is polite and respectful.
