School Description

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You have high expectations of pupils and staff and aspirations are high. The relatively recent arrival of a new head of school is proving successful and has created further capacity for the school to improve to become outstanding. Communication between leaders at all levels is a strength and the increasing impact middle leaders are having on improving the quality of teaching is clear to see. Your working partnership with governors continues to develop after a period that has seen a number of changes to the membership of the governing body. Governors are enthusiastic and increasingly effective at holding you and other leaders to account. Collectively, they know the school well and carry out their statutory duties diligently and with confidence. They are mindful of their overarching responsibility to maintain a strategic overview of the leadership and future direction of the school, and work well with the local authority and diocesan board to ensure that the school continues to improve. Staff at all levels are overwhelmingly supportive of leaders and rightly proud of the school. They enjoy their work and are successful at engaging and motivating pupils in their learning. As a consequence, pupils’ attitudes to school are very positive. Pupils told me on a number of occasions that teachers ‘make learning fun’. Pupils in one year group told me that the class teacher ensures that they enjoy learning, but that when she wants them to ‘crack on’ with their work, she is pretty tough.
