Ofsted report 

“The trend of improvement seen since the last inspection is also evident in the progress being made by current pupils across the school. Leaders’ drive to improve the quality and accuracy of assessments in order to provide clear baselines from which pupils should make at least expected progress in their learning has paid dividends.”
