We were last inspected by Ofsted in November 2014.

Here are a few highlights from our report which graded us as outstanding in all areas:

  • Cherry Oak is a rapidly improving school, which provides an excellent education for its pupils.
  • Pupils’ achievement across all subjects is outstanding due to the rapid progress they make.
  • Pupils have a strong desire and willingness to learn that is very clear to see in all lessons.
  • The executive headteacher has created a dynamic and forward-looking leadership team.
  • Teaching is outstanding due to careful planning, accurate assessment of pupil progress and high levels of challenge for all pupils.
  • Behaviour is outstanding and all pupils are very keen to learn and achieve success.
  • Everyone involved in the school rightly feel that Cherry Oak is a very safe place to learn and work.
  • Provision for children in early Years Foundation Stage is outstanding.
  • The links with parents are excellent and both the school questionnaire and the parents spoken to were highly positive. As one parent stated, ‘For the first time ever I feel listened to. I can talk to them and they talk, really talk to me.’ Another stated, ‘I just don’t know what I would do without them.’ When I am at my very bottom, the support they give me right back up – they are fantastic.’
  • The provision has excellent links with its federation partner.
