They respect views and opinions that are different from their own. As one pupil said, 'It...'s okay to have different beliefs; it doesn't matter. We just play with everyone.'

All staff have high expectations of pupils. Pupils rise to these expectations. The school's ambitious curriculum has been carefully constructed.

Leaders have thought about what pupils need to know and the skills they need to master, starting in the Nursery.
