“Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is outstanding. Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage have excellent attitudes to learning and are enthusiastic about all elements of their work and play. The vast majority of pupils in the rest of the school have similarly very positive attitudes to their work; behaviour and attendance are good. Pupils are exceptionally positive about the many extra- curricular activities that are offered; participation rates are high”.
