What do people say about our school?


Pupils are happy and feel safe in school. They learn in a warm, caring, and calm environment. They establish highly respectful relationships with each other.

Pupils’ behaviour is good and relationships in the school are very positive.

These pupils make strong gains in their learning from when they join the school. They learn well because leaders are ambitious for them.

Bullying is rare. If it does happen pupils know that staff deal with it quickly. Pupils know that there are many adults who they can go to if they need support.
