  • The headteacher provides strong, committed leadership that is focused on providing a high standard of education for all pupils.
  • The school works effectively to support all groups of pupils, including disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities.
  • Pupils are well behaved around the school and in lessons. Pupils enjoy school and their attitudes to learning are positive.
  • The school provides a safe learning environment. Pupils say that they feel safe in school.
  • Pupils follow a broad and balanced curriculum. They study a range of interesting topics that contribute well to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • The school provides a comprehensive range of after-school and lunchtime activities. Pupils and parents are highly appreciative of this provision.
  • The headteacher is well supported by a team of assistant headteachers and the governing body. Together they have created a learning environment and culture that promote good behaviour and positive attitudes towards learning and celebrate success. Staff share these high expectations and are proud to work in the school. Staff morale is high.
  • Relationships between staff and pupils are very positive. Teachers have high expectations of pupils. Pupils are expected to behave well, present their work neatly and correct any mistakes in their work.
  • Pupils enjoy coming to school and describe the school as a happy place where pupils help one another, teachers are kind and ‘relationships are good between teachers and pupils’.
  • Pupils told inspectors that bullying is rare and that they can talk to an adult if they have concerns. Staff are confident that any bullying is dealt with quickly and appropriately, as do most parents. Parents commented that ‘bullying is not tolerated’ and that, if it should occur, it is dealt with.
  • Lunchtime is a pleasant, social occasion. Pupils line up sensibly for their meal and demonstrate good table manners when eating. Outside, pupils play together cooperatively and they value the good resources available.
