  • Pupils are proud to be a member of this school. They love to learn.
  • Pupils take full advantage of the very broad range of extra-curricular opportunities on offer.
  • Leaders are very ambitious for what pupils will learn in reading, writing and mathematics. In these subjects, pupils achieve exceptionally well.
  • Staff have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour. Pupils conduct themselves extremely well.
  • Leaders have designed a broad, ambitious curriculum for Years 1 to 6.
  • Leaders ensure that pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) have their needs identified quickly. Teachers adapt their implementation of the curriculum well so that pupils with SEND follow the same ambitious curriculum as their classmates.

  • The way that leaders cater for pupils’ personal development is exemplary. They go way beyond the expected to make sure that pupils thrive.
