School Description

There have been lots of changes in leaders and staff over the last few years. Now that a new headteacher is in post, she is bringing much needed stability. Most pupils trust her. They can see the improvements that she is making. For example, the behaviour of pupils has started to improve. Although some pupils do not always behave well, the school is generally calm. Pupils’ learning and experiences of school are also starting to improve. Some of the older pupils have major gaps in their knowledge and understanding. They do not read or write as well as they should. Their achievement in mathematics is weak. Teachers do not build upon what pupils already know. Staff have not expected pupils to aim high. Pupils are not following a structured programme and learning enough. Pupils generally feel safe. Most are happy to be at school. They attend regularly. Some pupils say that bullying exists but that teachers do their best to deal with it. Pupils receive the social and emotional support they need. Changes are already afoot. There is now a stronger focus on outdoor education, conservation and current affairs at school. Teachers are using the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme to support pupils’ personal development.
