Pupils make strong progress in a wide range of subjects because : of consistently strong teaching. The principal's outstanding leadership and passionate commitment to every pupil inspires staff and pupils to have the highest aspirations. Consequently, pupils make outstanding progress from their starting points.
This aspirational vision for all pupils provides all leaders with a clear direction in their areas of responsibility. Their high-quality leadership of teaching, learning, assessment and pastoral systems is outstan...ding. Teachers plan learning activities that meet the needs of nearly all pupils exceptionally well.
They use their expert subject knowledge and information about pupils' progress very effectively to help pupils learn. Staff are ambitious for their pupils and want the best for them. Leaders are aware that they need to continue to monitor assessment practice carefully to ensure it is as accurate as possible.
Disadvantaged pupils currently in the school are making rapid progress and attaining in line with their peers. This is because leaders set ambitious targets and pupils benefit from outstanding teaching.

Pupils' personal development and welfare are outstanding. This is an inclusive school where all pupils are valued and feel safe.
Respect and contributing to the community are key elements of the school ethos and, as a result, pupils feel well cared for. Attendance is well above the national average and very few pupils miss a day at school. This is because pupils value the education that they receive and have a real sense of belonging to the school community.
Pupils' behaviour is exemplary. They are polite, considerate and mature. Pupils value the opinions of their classmates.
They work well together and want the best for each other. Governors, supported by Tauheedul multi-academy trust, share the vision for the school and have played a key role in its development. Leaders have identified the need to continue to expand the curriculum as the school continues to grow, for example by introducing more artistic subjects.
