This is a good school The headteacher leads the school with a strong moral purpose. Her unwavering vision for all pupils in the school to succeed is adopted wholeheartedly by leaders, staff and governors.

All leaders contribute very effectively to school improvement.

Progress in writing is not as strong as it is in reading and mathematics. Pupils' behaviour in lessons and around school is impeccable. There are effective strategies in place to promote high standards of behaviour and to help pupils become self-disciplined.

Governors are committed to their roles and want the best for the pupils in the school. Governors know the school's strengths and provide high challenge to leaders The school's Christian values are of high importance to staff and pupils.
