Summary of key findings for parents and pupils

This is a good school The executive principal has established a successful and oversubscribed school in just three years.

Trust leaders hold school leaders to account well. The trust provides strong professional development. This includes training and leadership roles within local trust schools.

Teachers have high expectations and have established good routines. As a result, pupils are engaged in their learning and make good progress. Disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities are progressing as well as their peers.

The curriculum is full of exciting opportunities for pupils to learn in varied ways. Pup...ils gain many rich experiences. Parents and carers are overwhelmingly positive about the school.

Pupils behave in an exemplary manner around the school and in lessons. They show respect for each other, teachers and visitors. Well-trained staff look after pupils' emotional and physical well-being very effectively.

Pupils feel safe and are safe within the school. They are taught well about how to stay safe in a coastal area, which is very relevant because : of the school's location. Teaching does not stretch and challenge the most able pupils, including the most able disadvantaged, frequently enough.

A few teachers are weaker in their practice, which leads to inconsistencies in pupils' learning. Pupils' attendance is good. Staff have communicated effectively with parents to make sure previous poor attendance has improved.

Learning in foundation subjects lacks sufficient structure. The most able are not provided with learning that deepens their understanding and low-ability pupils are not supported adequately in these subjects.
