Quote from the latest inspection

“The school is a bright and welcoming place. Pupils show respect for the building and grounds. They know that one of the school’s values is ‘We look after our school and those in it’, and they pay close attention to this. Pupils make good progress and achieve well. Standards in reading, writing and mathematics have improved since the previous inspection.
Teachers plan interesting and enjoyable activities that help pupils to make good progress. The school helps pupils to develop a love of reading. There is a wide range of books for pupils to choose from and they are keen to talk about their favourites. Pupils’ behaviour is good. They work very well together in lessons, supporting each other and talking enthusiastically about their learning.”
