"The staff and children make the school feel like a family and there is a real community spirit".
"Leaders and teachers have high expectations and enable pupils to meet them".
"Pupils take pride in their work, present it well and try hard".
"Pupils said that the best things about the school were "the teachers" and the fact that they "learn lots of stuff".
"Many pupils engage in activities outside the classroom that aid their personal development, with drama, music and physical education being particularly popular".
"You work effectively to promote the progress of pupils who face challenging circumstances so that they typically attend and learn well".

"Together with other leaders and governors, you set high standards and check the quality of the school's work against these rigorously".
"Pupils at the school, together with their parents and carers, are rightly confident that the school is a safe place. Leaders, including governors, have created a culture in which safeguarding is everybody's responsibility."
"Leaders work tenaciously to ensure that pupils who need it receive appropriate help from external agencies".
"Bullying is infrequent and usually dealt with effectively, and that prejudice-based bullying is exceptionally rare".
