We are an OUTSTANDING school.
Some highlights from the last inspection:
"Wonderful, engaging activities are on offer in the vibrant indoor and outdoor spaces."
"The school is an oasis of calm, purposeful learning."
"Kindness towards, and a respect for, everyone within the school’s diverse community makes Rebecca Cheetham a happy place to learn."
"We noticed that adults have an excellent understanding of what each child needs next. They know precisely when to step in and question, or when to step back. This is because they understand how young children learn."
"The promotion of literacy is exceptional. We saw children developing a love of books and learning basic phonics skills appropriate to their age. A rich diet of carefully chosen books are integral to the school’s curriculum offer."
