On support for our children :

“Care, guidance and support are outstanding. The greatest strength of the school's pastoral and academic support lies in its knowledge of individual pupils. In addition to the benefits of its small and close community, the school takes every step to ensure pupils' trust, safety and security. Parents are readily welcomed into the school and strong relationships have been developed.”

 On our teaching :

“The quality of teaching and learning is outstanding. There is a shared and consistent understanding of how to motivate, interest and engage pupils. Planning is of high quality, focusing extremely well on group and individual needs. Thorough and regular marking is sharply focused on helping pupils know how well they are doing and what they need to do to improve further.”

 On our Governors :

“Governors carry out their duties very conscientiously and hold the school to account in an excellent way. Financial management is very strong and the school provides outstanding value for money.”

 On our children :

“Pupils love school. This is shown in the high levels of attendance and their obvious enthusiasm and desire to succeed in their work. Their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding. Relationships are excellent throughout the school and they help to foster a real sense of community. Pupils say they feel safe in school.”
