“Across the school, pupils act as positive role models for younger children in the early years. They are proud to take on leadership roles that support the school to become better for everyone.

“Pupils behave exceptionally well. They are kind and considerate. Pupils are highly respectful towards each other and to the adults they meet. The school is a haven of calm, where pupils learn without distraction.”

Inspectors also noted how the school meets the additional needs of all pupils, including those with SEND. Staff receive suitable training and guidance to ensure they meet the needs of those pupils well.

To improve, inspectors said in a few subjects the essential knowledge pupils need to remember has not been finalised, and that staff need to identify the small steps of learning that will help pupils learn and recall important subject knowledge.

The school was inspected on February 15 and is likely to be inspected again some time within the next four years.
