The inspector noted,

“The Christian values which are firmly embedded throughout the school exert a very strong influence on relationships and the spiritual, moral social and cultural development of the pupils.

“The outstanding commitment shown by school leaders and governors has fostered the development of the Christian character of the school.

“The exceptionally close relationship with the local church has had a significant impact upon the quality of worship.

“Longfleet Primary School is a large school close to Poole town centre with 540 pupils aged from 4 to 11. The majority of pupils are of white British heritage although there are an increasing number whose first language is not English. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for additional funding known as the pupil premium is below average. The proportion of pupils with special educational needs and or physical disabilities is below national averages. Since the last inspection the age range for which the school caters has changed and a new headteacher and deputy headteacher have been appointed.
