Some quotes from our last Ofsted report: A sense of caring and togetherness permeates every aspect of school life.; Pupils feel safe, behave well and enjoy coming to school; Pupils use and apply their reading, writing and mathematical skills across the curriculum; ...teachers ensure pace and rigour and pupils display high levels of independence because of clear, high expectations and well established routines

During February 2014 we were visited by an assessor from the Basic Skills Quality Mark Programme. We are pleased to say that we had our award renewed after the visit and are proud to share some of the comments from the final report below.

The strong leadership of the Head teacher is very impressive.

The school has a clear system for tracking individual pupil progress.

The children are actively involved in their learning  and the assessment of their learning.

The stimulating environment encourages children and staff to flourish.
