“Since the last inspection, the headteacher, senior leaders and governors have developed a more ambitious vision for the school’s development. Decisive action by senior leaders and governors has led to a restructuring of the school’s leadership and management. There is now greater clarity of expectation in the roles of senior and middle leaders and of their accountability for the school’s improvement.”
