Outstanding, March 2023
Fielding continues to be an 'outstanding' school.
Back-to-back Ofsted outstanding judgements in February 2017 and now March 2023 show that the main school, Nursery and ARP give around 1,000 pupils every year the best possible start to learning and readiness for their next school.
Ofsted's report highlights:
happy, safe and very well-behaved pupils who understand and respect diversity and differences;
an ambitious, rich curriculum for all pupils from Nursery to year 6, including those with special educational needs;
excellent professional development for staff resulting in the highest quality teaching;
exceptional teaching of phonics leading to older pupils loving reading;
wide-ranging and exciting opportunities for pupils to learn and develop personally;
rigorous culture of safeguarding and working with other agencies;
how our core values of respect, resilience, reflection and empathy underpin everything we do.

Outstanding, February 2017
Ofsted inspectors judged Fielding as ‘outstanding’ in every aspect of the school’s work during our inspection in February 2017.
The school improved from its ‘good’ judgement in all areas at the previous inspection in July 2012.
The report is overwhelmingly favourable, accurately reflecting the work of the school. During the inspection, one pupil told inspectors, ‘this school is as close to perfect as you are going to get.’
Share your views through Parent View. Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View.
When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.
To use Parent View, please register with Ofsted using an email address and a password. Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc.
Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.
If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.
