Pupils enjoy coming to school. They feel valued and well cared for because senior leaders have placed the welfare of pupils at the heart of the school. As a result, pupils are happy and feel safe. The much-valued sense of community and caring remain central to the school and its work.

You have wasted no time in sharpening the ambition of the school. You have your finger on the pulse of the school, know its strengths and areas for improvement, and have identified the right areas to prioritise. You have focused unwaveringly on raising the levels of expectations of what pupils can achieve and improving the quality of teaching.

A good culture of learning has developed from pupils being openly reflective about their values, such as ‘determination’, which has enabled good progress across the school.
