“The headteacher, well supported by senior leaders, has ensured progress in all areas of the school’s work since the last inspection. Teaching is effective because teachers plan lessons that are well matched to what students need to learn next. Teachers’ skilful questioning helps them to check students’ understanding and quickly clear up any misconceptions. Students are keen to learn and are rightly proud of their good conduct in school. They appreciate the skilled and sensitive support they receive to keep them safe and well.”
