The headteacher and all staff work hard to provide a caring, happy environment
to support pupils’ learning. School leaders have effective systems for
tracking pupils’ progress and this helps to ensure that all pupils achieve
well from their individual starting points.
Teaching is good. Lessons are planned and delivered with care to make
sure the needs of pupils are met well. Resources are designed to help pupils
engage in and enjoy their learning.
Behaviour is outstanding. Pupils are always ready to learn and behave
exceptionally well. Relationships are excellent and pupils help each other
to learn. They feel very safe in the school and believe they are very well
The very high numbers of pupils for whom English is an additional language
and those who come to school at different points in their education, including
many from abroad, are well supported and make good progress.
The promotion of social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is
a strength of the school. Pupils have the opportunity to understand each
other’s backgrounds and cultures. They develop effective social skills
and provide strong support for each other.
Disabled pupils and those with special educational needs make good progress
through well-designed support.
Governors keep a close eye on how well pupils are achieving.
