Ofsted June 2022

‘Leaders put pupils at the heart of everything they do. Leaders, staff and governors have high expectations and are determined that all pupils achieve well. They care about pupils and support and challenge them to do their very best.

‘Behaviour at break and lunchtimes is amazing. Pupils play well together and show genuine kindness to others. Pupils told inspectors that it is ‘always nice to be kind’. Bullying is incredibly rare, and teachers act swiftly if there is any unkindness. Pupils’ behaviour and attitudes are a strength of the school. ‘

‘Strong leadership has transformed the quality of education at the school. The staff team are deeply committed to the shared vision. They ensure that pupils ‘learn, grow and succeed together’.
