The school is a very happy and inclusive community. It has a very positive and caring Christian ethos within a climate of trust and mutual respect.

The headteacher leads by example and has communicated a clear vision of the school and its future development to pupils, staff, governors and parents. She provides highly effective leadership and strategic direction for the school. All members of staff work closely together to create a supportive whole-school ethos based on highly effective team work.

All teachers have high expectations of pupils and provide stimulating and engaging lessons. An impressive programme of educational visits and visitors within and beyond the community, enriches the curriculum. All staff have very good working relationships with pupils, showing mutual trust and respect.

The school is a strong learning community, has initiated many effective networks of professional practice, and has shared specific examples of its good practice across the local authority, for example in the planning and teaching of literacy. Nearly all pupils show high levels of engagement and are keen, motivated and very confident learners. Standards of behaviour of nearly all pupils are exemplary.’
