School Description

Pupils enjoy coming to school and feel safe. They have good relationships with staff and each other. Staff know the pupils well. Behaviour in lessons and around school is good. Pupils are polite and caring towards each other, staff and visitors. Parents and carers say what a positive difference the school has made to their children’s attendance and attitudes to school. Leaders want pupils to develop their personal, social and emotional skills. Staff are skilled in addressing these needs across different subjects. Pupils learn to talk about their feelings and manage their behaviour. They have regular opportunities to go abroad on residential trips to broaden their knowledge of different countries and cultures. Pupils and parents say that bullying is rare. When incidents do occur, they are managed well by staff. Teachers have high expectations of pupils. However, leaders do not have a clear overview of the curriculum across different subjects and for all ages. Therefore, they cannot be sure that all pupils get the same opportunities to build on previous learning.
