School Description

: Cambridge Steiner School is part of the Cambridge Steiner School Project which also operates the Buttercups Little Kindergarten on the same site. This kindergarten is administratively part of the school, although it is separately registered with Ofsted and is reported on separately. The school was founded in 1993 and moved to its present site, a former special school, in 2007. The school currently has 91 pupils, a slight rise since it was last inspected in 2010. It has three kindergarten classes, which meet in the morning, and an afternoon care session. These classes cater for children aged from three to six years old. There are three primary school classes Class 1, which has Year 2 children, Class 2/3 for Years 3 and 4, and Class 4/5 for Years 5 and 6. None of the children in the school has a statement of special educational needs. The school has experienced a significant change in staff and trustees in the recent past and is developing systems of leadership and management to address its identified needs and to operate efficiently. The recent recruitment of a school manager reflects these needs. The school follows the Steiner Waldorf curriculum which emphasises the development of the child intellectually, emotionally and socially. This curriculum is extended through the use of woodland provision by the Kindergarten classes and has been extended in woodcraft work in the oldest class, and by weekly woodland visits in all the primary school classes, again in local woods. Summary of main findings: The school provides a good education. Members of the school with leadership and management roles are successfully addressing issues affecting the school and are establishing procedures to promote consistent development in the future. The curriculum is usefully extended by woodland work in the Kindergartens and the Primary classes. Across all classes aesthetic and creative experiences enhance the pupils’ learning. Planning in the Kindergartens is outstanding. It identifies individual children’s needs very effectively and uses these to provide appropriate activities which are then evaluated, forming the basis for future planning.
