“Pupils enjoy their sports lessons, they all participate and the proportion attending after-school clubs is very high.”

About leadership:

”The executive headteacher and governing body have been highly successful in addressing the issues from the last inspection.

About teaching:

”Teaching over time is leading to outstanding outcomes for pupils currently in the school. Work in pupils’ books and the school’s progress information shows that pupils currently in the school are making   outstanding progress. This is because teachers have high expectations of pupils; they want them to succeed. Pupils are encouraged to challenge themselves in their learning and teachers provide the support pupils need to move on to more difficult work. The relationships between teachers and pupils are very positive.” ”Teachers have excellent subject knowledge and they use this exceptionally well to question pupils in order to check their understanding and deepen their learning. Pupils who demonstrate a good understanding are quickly moved on to the next task.” ”Teaching assistants are very well trained, highly skilled and effective in their role. They work in close partnership with teachers and have a good understanding of the requirements of the pupils they support.” “Teachers show a passion for the subjects they teach.” “The federation  arrangements allow staff in both schools to learn from one another.”

About personal development, behaviour and welfare:

“Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is exceptionally well catered for.” “The school  provides a very secure learning environment, which enables pupils to flourish and develop into self-assured and confident young people.” “Behaviour in the playground and dining hall is exemplary.” ”Pupils’ behaviour in lessons is exceptionally good. Their enthusiasm for learning is obvious. ….. When working in groups or individually, pupils concentrate very well on their work.” “The school is fully inclusive and all pupils are taught to value and respect one another. Pupils agree that the school helps them to be friendly towards one another, describing the school as being ‘a team because we all work together.’ Parents agree. ‘The inclusive ethos is about older children taking responsibility for making younger children feel included. It works.’ reflects a typical parent comment.”
