Head Teacher's Overview

Welcome to Sparsholt C of E Primary School. Our school value statement,

"Dig deep and flourish with courage, compassion and creativity"

encapsulates the ethos of our school and guides us in everything we do.

Our most recent Ofsted report (2010) stated that

  • "Staff expect pupils to do their best and, as a result, their attainment is high and all groups of pupils make consistently good progress."
  • "The rich and exciting curriculum is the key feature in the school's success."
  • "Pupils' exemplary behaviour, both in and out of the classroom, along with their excellent attitudes to learning and ability to work cooperatively and independently, make a highly effective contribution to their learning and progress, which overall are good and at times outstanding"
  • "Attention to detail leads to excellent outcomes"
  • "Pupils enjoy school and are well prepared for the next stage in their life and learning."
  • "Parents and carers make a significant contribution to the community, supporting the school magnificently"

We are very proud of the judgements and descriptions above, however we are not complacent and continually strive to secure the best for all.

We have experienced, talented staff, who are caring, enthusiastic and determined to help all children achieve their best. We pride ourselves on our ability to know our pupils individually. We can help our children who have special educational needs and we endevour to extend the skills of all our learners through the exciting and challenging curriculum available to all our pupils.
