Quotes taken from the 2023 report


“Pupils, parents and carers value this greatly. Pupils feel safe and parents agree. Staff get to know pupils well and this helps them feel part of the school family.”

“ Leaders have raised aspirations across the school. Staff set high expectations. Pupils rise to these. The curriculum is ambitious for all pupils. Subject leaders are knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects.”

“Pupils embrace the school motto of ‘be the best you can be’. They thoroughly enjoy coming to school.”

“Leaders identify the needs of pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) accurately. They ensure that staff receive appropriate information to enable them to adapt the curriculum for these pupils. Teaching assistants work closely with teachers to provide targeted and purposeful support. As a result, pupils with SEND thrive.”

“Staff teach pupils the school values of curiosity, determination, pride, joy and respect. Pupils apply these values daily in lessons. Pupils are curious and welcome questions that stimulate thinking. They learn to work together effectively at an early age.”

“Leaders have designed learning in the early years to support children to get off to the best possible start. The curriculum in Reception prepares children effectively for key stage 1. No time is wasted. The whole-school oracy focus supports pupils to answer questions precisely. This helps pupils to think deeply about what they have learned.”
