Comments from latest report

The School is highly inclusive and pupils enjoy learning alongside each other, showing a caring, supportive attitude as they do so.

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You are driven and determined to ensure that your vision of, ' a school family, engaged, aspiring and learning together' fully describes the school - and it does.

Teachers talk with excitement and enthusiasm about strategies that improve the quality of teaching and learning across the school. A typical comment from subject leaders was, 'since we have introduced this, pupils are soaring'

This is a caring, nurturing school where pupils are well mannered, polite and friendly. Everyone has a chance to shine and do well. Pupils enjoy learning alongside each other. Special themed weeks, such as arts week, enable pupils to learn with pupils from other year groups and they do this with confidence and growing maturity.
