“Teachers plan effectively to meet the wide-ranging needs of pupils. Lessons challenge most pupils and make good use of resources. Younger pupils enjoy using the ‘challenge bell’ when they complete a harder task” – OFSTED 2015
“The school’s curriculum celebrates diversity and provides a very good range of learning experiences. The focus on art and music is evident, with high quality, colourful displays throughout the school and regular opportunities to develop musical talents.” – OFSTED 2015
“Pupils learn about democracy and equality of opportunity through history lessons and the election of the school council. Assemblies provide good opportunities to celebrate pupils’ personal achievements and tackle discrimination. As a result of a range of school experiences, pupils have good knowledge of values, tolerance and respect, helping them to be well prepared for life in modern Britain.” – OFSTED 2015
“Additional money to improve pupils’ participation and ability in sport has been used well. New equipment and sessions for the most-able pupils have improved enjoyment and sport provision. The national ‘Change 4 Life’ initiative has been used well to improve pupils’ awareness of healthy life styles and the need for regular personal activity.” – OFSTED 2015
