We were judged as a 'Good' school by Ofsted in November 2019.
"At John Shelton leaders place pupils at the heart of everything. Their ethos is built on
inclusivity, where every pupil has the right to thrive and feel success, and they do. Pupils
know they are valued and cared for by all staff and they love coming to school.
Staff have created a welcoming learning environment where everyone feels safe.
Pupils behave very well. They are kind and respectful to one another and to staff. At lunch and
break times, they play together happily. Pupils have a good understanding of what bullying is. They say it is rare and if it does happen, staff deal with it quickly.
Staff know the pupils well and do all they can to make sure that they succeed at school. Pupils enjoy learning because teachers give them interesting and worthwhile work to do. The teaching of phonics and early reading and the many extra and unusual activities that go on outside the classroom are significant strengths.
There is an air of positivity at this school. Staff support all pupils effectively. Parents and carers have nothing but praise for the work of the school. They are delighted with the progress their children make."
