This is an outstanding school. Pupils throughout the school learn exceptionally well and make rapid progress.
The school promotes pupils' social, moral, spiritual, and cultural development exceptionally well and, as a result, pupils develop into supportive, reflective and articulate young people. The quality of teaching is outstanding. Parents and carers agree.
As one parent commented, 'My child's progress is largely due to the teachers.' Good pace and challenge, varied and practical activities, excellent use of assessment and animated teaching are characteristics of lessons. The curriculum is outstanding, providing pupils with stimulating experiences and opportunities to learn about the world....
Behaviour is excellent and attendance is above average. High expectations and a consistent approach to managing behaviour mean the school is a very happy place to be. Parents and carers fully support the view that the school keeps their children safe.
The success of the school is largely due to the leadership provided by the headteacher, which is very strong and reflects dedication and commitment. She has very effectively built a highly committed staff team. Senior leaders have successfully integrated pupils from two schools and formed exceptionally positive links with parents and carers.
As a result, morale is very high and belief in the school's success permeates all levels of the school. There are good systems in place for monitoring the performance of teachers. Staff say how much they value the support they receive and how their planned professional development and opportunities to review this help them address the school's priorities.
The governing body shows a high level of commitment to the school, as demonstrated by its members' regular visits and the active support they provide. However, due to changes in membership, it is at the early stages of evaluating the work of the school.
