Allington is an outstanding school that has very successfully built on its strengths since the last inspection. Pupils and parents alike are very positive about their experiences of the school, often pointing to its ability to foster high academic standards within a friendly and supportive atmosphere. As one pupil aptly put it, 'The school makes us work hard but it's usually fun!'
"Allington provides a good quality of education for its pupils. The school sees itself in this way and inspectors agree. Children get off to a good start in the Foundation Stage. Pupils leave the school at the end of Year 6 with standards that are above average. All pupils, including those with learning difficulties, make good progress in their learning. Pupils very much enjoy being at school and their behaviour is excellent. They have positive attitudes and feel safe and valued as individuals. Staff take very good care of pupils."
