What is it like to attend this school?

This is a thoroughly inclusive school.

The school and trust ensure that every pupil accesses an ambitious and exciting curriculum. Parents say their children flourish in school. Inspectors agree.

There is a strong sense of pupil pride across the school. This is evident in their work and personal achievements. Pupils are keen to share the school's motto, 'Everyone believes in us, and we believe in ourselves.'

Pupils feel safe in school.

Leaders and staff have exceptionally high expectations of behaviour. Pupils display the school values in daily school life.

They talk confidently about values such as resilience, kindness, collaboration, prid...e and responsibility. Pupils elected to 'college captain roles' lead weekly assemblies to congratulate pupils who demonstrate these values. Pupils eagerly anticipate prizes in assemblies and golden lunches with senior leaders to reward their success.

Leaders, working closely with the trust, help every pupil explore their talents and interests. Pupils enjoy an extensive range of experiences through the school's '11B411' enrichment programme. Pupils embrace opportunities through performing arts, adventurous activities and sporting events.

The school strongly promotes ambition among all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

The school has designed an ambitious curriculum for all pupils. Leaders have thought extremely carefully about what pupils need to learn and when.

Teachers have a good subject knowledge. They use this to help pupils develop new ideas and new vocabulary. The teaching of mathematics, English and foundation subjects is consistent throughout the school.

For example, in mathematics, staff follow clear guidance that enables pupils' knowledge to build with lots of opportunities to practise new skills. In many subjects, pupils confidently talk about their learning and understanding of new vocabulary. However, this is not the case in all subjects.

In a few subjects, some pupils find it difficult to recall what they have learned over time.

The school is committed to ensuring that every pupil develops a love of reading. Staff are confident teaching reading.

Where pupils need extra help, staff quickly identify what they need and provide high-quality interventions. The reading curriculum is aspirational. Pupils access a wide range of reading resources.

Pupils quickly become confident readers.

In Nursery and Reception, children learn important rhymes and sounds. They are supported by adults who get them off to a flying start in reading.

High-quality books are seen everywhere in school. Pupils talk enthusiastically about the books they are reading. Teachers skilfully choose books to stimulate discussions on a wide range of issues.

Pupils elected to the school parliament engage enthusiastically in inter-school debates.

Pupils understand the importance of good relationships. Those who take on leadership roles, such as well-being ambassadors, help pupils make friends and play together.

Staff deal with behaviour across school in a calm and consistent manner. This helps pupils feel safe. The focus on repairing and restoring relationships is at the heart of the school's exemplary behaviour management.

What does the school need to do to improve?

(Information for the school and appropriate authority)

• In science and some foundation subjects, teachers' checking of what pupils have learned is not as effective as it could be. Consequently, some pupils struggle to remember key knowledge and skills they have learned. The school should ensure that all staff check pupils' understanding and retention of key knowledge and language so that pupils can apply it to future learning.
