From the moment you walk through the door at Moorhill, you are in a world of ‘believing and achieving together’. Pupils enjoy being in school. They value their friendships. Pupils see themselves as respected and important members of the school community. Care and commitment shine out from Moorhill. Many visits, residentials and clubs enrich school life. Pupils are ready to face the challenges of learning and life that lie ahead. They truly do ‘believe and achieve together’.
Kirsty Foulkes, lead inspector Nov 2021

Pupils understand that each person is an individual and that diversity is something to celebrate. They enjoy learning about different faiths. They think that ‘it is important to learn this so [that] we understand and respect other people’s religions’

Leaders place a high priority on all pupils being able to talk about their learning in a
range of subjects. Pupils who met with
inspectors in reading, science, writing and mathematics all spoke clearly about their
learning. They used a wide range of words and gave interesting explanations.


Children in Reception Year settle well into school. Children play well together, using both the indoor and outside areas to help them be active and learn. They get off to a flying start with their reading and writing. Adults know each child well. They interact with children throughout the day.
Reading is at the centre of the curriculum. Pupils enjoy reading and are passionate about it. They read fluently and with expression. Leaders have ensured that a love of reading is well promoted. As part of this work, teachers read to pupils every day during story time. Teachers are skilled at bringing stories to life for pupils. Pupils enjoy this time, and both pupils and staff hold this time dear.
