“Pupils are correct in their belief that their teachers and learning support assistants care for them exceptionally well. The excellent support and guidance that pupils receive lead to them being fully aware of what they need to do to improve their standards. As a result, and from above average levels of attainment on entry to the school, pupils make excellent progress in their academic work, irrespective of their levels of ability, and consistently surpass their very challenging targets.”
