School Description

Most pupils value their school and like their teachers. Staff are caring and proud to work with the pupils. Staff know the pupils well and relationships are very positive. Pupils are usually polite. Staff ensure that classrooms are mostly calm. Pupils apply themselves well to their work. They say they are improving personally and academically. However, staff sometimes do not check carefully enough what pupils already know. They do not consistently use this information to plan lessons that builds pupils’ knowledge over time. Work to ensure that pupils can read fluently and have positive attitudes to reading is at an early stage. Pupils understand the importance of respecting others. They typically say, ‘I don’t base people on their gender or race. I think of them as a person.’ Some pupils’ understanding of different cultures and beliefs is not as strong as it should be. Pupils say bullying is rare. They are confident that there is a member of staff they can speak with if they are worried about something. Staff expect all pupils to behave well. Staff are positive and encouraging. However, leaders have not ensured that staff are as skilled as they could be in preventing some inappropriate behaviours.
