School Description

Pupils are benefiting from improvements in the school since the previous inspection. They learn happily and play safely in this positive, well-organised school. Staff have high expectations of the pupils, who are keen to learn and want to do their best. Pupils work hard and complete their work carefully and neatly. Classrooms have a positive and purposeful atmosphere, so that pupils are able to focus on their work. Strong and caring relationships help pupils to feel comfortable and secure. They say that adults keep them safe and that bullying is not something that they need to worry about. One said, ‘We are all friends here and we look out for each other.’ Leaders take suitable action to address any concerns about bullying. The school’s curriculum supports pupils’ personal and social development well. For example, pupils talk confidently and perceptively about relationships. One commented, ‘It’s important to be kind because when you’re kind everyone wants to help you.’ Pupils behave very well most of the time. They enjoy using the school’s play equipment, joining in with a game of football, or making a fuss of Blue, the school’s therapy dog, during breaktimes. Pupils speak to visitors politely. They are understandably proud of their school.
