Summary of key findings for parents and pupils
This is a good school Since 2017, leaders have improved every aspect of the school.
They have ensured that the curriculum is appropriate, flexible and meets pupils' needs. The school is now a calm and purposeful place. Pupils are consistently respectful to one another and staff.
Governors are ambitious for pupils and have supported leaders in their journey of improvement. They are not afraid to change things when they are not working. Though improving, disadvantaged pupils' progress in mathematics could be improved further.
Literacy and numeracy teaching in tutorial time is not as effective as it could be. Pupils' behaviour has improved considerably. The number of days of education pupils lose because of exclusion has reduced drastically.
Pupils' attendance has improved and is now in line with the national average. Teaching has improved. Leaders' systems to monitor teaching standards and improve learning have been effective.
Provision for groups who have previously underachieved has improved. As a result, disadvantaged pupils, those with low prior attainment and those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities has improved. Too few pupils who attend alternative provision are reintegrated back into the school.
