School Description

Pupils like coming to this exceptional school. They feel safe and they work hard in their lessons. Pupils start the morning being greeted by friendly and positive staff. The school environment is calm, organised and inviting. Teachers make exceedingly good use of the excellent learning environment and the high-quality resources. Teachers make lessons interesting, and pupils appreciate the extra help and support they get in order to do their best. Pupils behave very well. If a pupil needs extra help to manage their emotions, staff provide this in a calm and supportive way so that there is very little disruption to lessons. Pupils say that bullying is not a problem. Sometimes, there might be disagreements or clashes of personality, but staff sort this out quickly. As they progress through the school, pupils learn strategies to do this for themselves. Leaders have built a positive and expert staff team. Staff spend time finding out about the specific needs of each pupil and adapting their approach accordingly. The school’s positive vision and values are threaded clearly through the everyday work of the school.
