School Description

Pupils feel happy and safe in this school. They behave well and settle down to their work. This is because they know that staff have high expectations of their behaviour. Pupils have weekly, one-to-one sessions when they can talk to someone about any problems. This helps them to develop positive relationships. Teachers help pupils to understand what bullying is and how to regulate their behaviour. As a result, incidents of bullying are rare. Frequent outdoor activities help pupils to learn about the local area. Activities, including walking and climbing, help pupils to develop stamina and resilience. Opportunities, such as learning to care for animals, support pupils’ personal development. Pupils enjoy learning because teachers plan activities that are well matched to their needs and interests. Pupils respond well to adults’ high expectations of what they can do. They make strong progress in many subjects in the curriculum. The school places a strong emphasis on the importance of reading. All pupils say they enjoy reading and they read confidently. Pupils frequently find out more about their personal interests by reading and researching on the internet.
