Through their actions and a strong moral purpose, leaders demonstrate their care and concern for all in the school community. Effective use of professional development has resulted in good teaching.

Leaders use their assessments effectively to meet the needs of the children. Pupils' writing is well supported through the planned sequence of learning.
