School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. This has been managed successfully during the school’s expansion to three forms of entry, and at a time when more pupils join and leave the school during the school year than is normally found. Leaders have successfully addressed the areas for development from the previous inspection. For example, leaders’ work to improve attendance has had a positive impact. Attendance is now in line with the national average. You and the senior leadership team have created a culture which nurtures all aspects of pupils’ development. This is a happy and calm school. Pupils work hard and with very positive attitudes. They attend carefully to their teachers and to each other, reflecting the ethos of being a ‘listening school’. This is evident in the highquality discussions between pupils and in the swift responses to teachers’ instructions. Pupils take pride in their work, which is well presented. This is shown not only in their writing but also in the way that they work on written number problems in mathematics, which is a strength across the school. Pupils told inspectors that they appreciate how their teachers help them as they challenge themselves to learn new skills. One member of the school parliament said that ‘The support that teachers provide is amazing.’ The school’s ethos is also seen in its ‘intergenerational project’, which brings mutual benefits through links with an elderly group of local residents.
