" This is a good school"
The school has improved steadily and securely since its previous inspection.
Good leadership and management systems are now in place. These have become well established giving the school good capacity to improve even further.
The headteacher, senior leaders and governors have been very effective in improving the quality of teaching and raising pupils’ achievement.
Good teaching has accelerated pupils’ progress. All groups do equally well and those that were behind have now caught up.
Teaching staff are fully accountable for pupils’ progress. They receive good training and have played a full part in making the improvements that were needed.
Behaviour is good in and out of the classroom. Pupils are friendly, caring and supportive of each other. They have complete trust in teachers and in each other to look after them and say they feel very safe at school.
The effectiveness of leadership at subject level is now good. Most heads of subject have a clear understanding of what their responsibilities are and of how they can continue to improve pupils’ achievement.
The headteacher, staff and governors know the school’s strengths and areas for further development, and are jointly taking decisive action to make continuous improvements.
The schools stated aim ‘to create a calm and purposeful school where everyone feels valued and able to achieve their full potential’ is fast becoming a reality.
