“Safeguarding is effective and leaders have swiftly ensured that a culture of vigilance has become firmly established. Pupils say that they feel safe,” – Ofsted
“Teachers have strong subject knowledge that they use enthusiastically to engage pupils in a variety of interesting learning activities, which pupils say they value,” - Ofsted.
“Pupils behave well. They are polite, smart and courteous. Pupils understand the values of the school and demonstrate this in the way that they interact and care for one another,” - Ofsted.
“ There are strong and positive relationships between pupils and staff. Pupils respond promptly to instructions and they work well independently and in groups to support each other’s learning,” - Ofsted.
“ The personal development of pupils, alongside their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is highly effective. Pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain,” - Ofsted.
