School Performance

We are delighted that Ofsted judged our school to be good overall.

The inspector was very impressed with the pupils across the school. She praised their behaviour, respect of both adults and pupils, their infectious zest for their education and their ability to speak about their learning with confidence and a genuine sense of engagement and excitement. She also specifically mentioned their lovely sense of humour, their honesty and their desire and willingness to be a key part of school improvement. The inspector praised the diligence, tenacity and effort of our staff team to ensure a happy, caring, purposeful learning environment for all pupils to achieve and make progress.  (March 2017)
