School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. The last inspection took place some time before your recent appointment as acting headteacher. Since then, you have led the school with purpose and determination. You have developed and improved the school for the benefit of your pupils and staff. You have dealt with the impact of significant turbulence regarding the relocation of the school and the change of senior leadership with passion and a clarity of vision. Your staff team supports you very well and embraces the improvements and changes that you are bringing about. Staff enjoy the benefits of your determination to decrease their workload. You have identified further areas where this can occur. Staff morale is very high and staff are excited to be on the journey with you. They appreciate the level of communication and understand that this also serves to develop them professionally. However, the quality of teaching at the school is not consistently good or better. Some staff plan, teach and resource highly effective lessons where pupils make strong progress towards their targets. In other classes, this high standard is not always evident. You are aware of this and tiered measures of support are in place for those who need it.
