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 December 2016 we were visited by an assessor from the Basic Skills Quality Mark Programme. We are pleased to say that we again had our award renewed after the visit and are proud to share some of the comments from the final report below.

There was a lovely ethos in the school.

You are a great team, all working very hard to provide a very high quality Basic Skills education for all pupils within the context of a broad and balanced curriculum.

The children were polite, articulate and keen to do their best.

The quality of marking and feedback is impressive and has a positive impact on progress made.

The classrooms are all great learning environments.
