Governors, staff, pupils and parents are celebrating following  the findings of their latest Ofsted inspection report. Inspectors concluded: “The school has improved rapidly since becoming an academy.”

Inspectors commended pupils for their good attitude to learning and their confident and happy demeanour. ‘Pupils are polite and respectful to adults and each other’. The report also highlights the much improved progress and attainment of pupils. The report acknowledged that lessons are well planned and pupils speak enthusiastically about their learning. The report concluded that the progress of disadvantaged pupils was also tracked carefully to ensure that they achieve as well as they can. Particular strengths highlighted by the inspectors included the good start that pupils make in Reception.  Inspectors praised the work of the Principal, identifying that the leadership and management of the academy is ‘highly effective’. Governors also ‘know the school well and ensure that new initiatives are effective’.
