Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a good school.
You and your team have made this school a very caring school where pupils’ emotional and educational needs are met well. Some pupils at the school have complex and specific emotional needs. You and your team take exceptional care in making sure that their needs are considered and that all pupils are made to feel safe and welcome.
Your vision and high expectations of what pupils can achieve are shared by your dedicated staff. The school’s values statement of ‘GROWTH’, representing, goals, respect, ownership, work ethic, teamwork and health, permeates well throughout the school.
Pupils said how much they love their school. They said enthusiastically that the best thing about the school is that everybody is well behaved and friendly. Pupils’ behaviour is a strength of the school. Pupils rise to the high expectations set with the need for very little adult supervision and they know they are responsible for their own behaviours. They are polite and courteous to others and make the school a calm, orderly and friendly environment to be in. Pupils know that everybody is different and they welcome and celebrate those differences. Pupils have an excellent attitude to learning. They enjoy learning and are proud to show the work they have completed in their books. They said how much teachers help them improve their work.
Your detailed analysis of pupils’ progress enables you and your team to quickly identify any pupil or groups of pupils who are not making good or better progress. Teachers implement a system of daily immediate intervention to tackle any misconceptions before they become embedded. Teaching assistants are highly valued and skilled in ensuring that pupils understand concepts and they quickly pick up when pupils need some attention to help them continue in their learning.
