What Ofsted says about our schools:

“Leaders of the MAT and the headteacher have a vision for the school, which staff share.  There is a clear culture of hard work and excellent behaviour throughout the school.”

“The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding.”

“Pupils’ behaviour and conduct in lessons and around the school is excellent.”

“The early years foundation stage (EYFS) is well led. It provides pupils with an effective start to their education.”

“Leadership is effective in the early years. Leaders ensure that children are nurtured within a caring, stimulating, inviting environment. Adults take care to ensure that all children are included in activities that are appropriate to their stage of development. Children, therefore, behave well and are able to move from one activity to another having had a positive experience.”
