This school continues to be good.
The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. The school has expanded considerably; it has doubled in size over the last four years. There are many new staff, including several that are new to teaching.
You have high expectations. These are reflected in the very strong quality of teaching and behaviour management and the immaculate, engaging school environment. You provide swift support for any teachers whose practice falls below expectations and you have effectively challenged performance to ensure that the quality of teaching remains good.
Members of the governing body are highly committed to providing a ‘holistic’ education for all pupils. This is exemplified by the richness of the curriculum and the variety of well-attended clubs that take place after school. I observed pupils after school taking part in cross-country, netball and rehearsing for a singing competition. The quality of singing and dancing was fantastic and the enthusiasm of the teacher and pupils was intense.
The classroom environment sets the scene for high-quality learning. All classrooms are adorned with beautiful displays and examples of pupils’ work. Achievement is celebrated in art, science and across the curriculum throughout the building.
