'Pupils are proud to welcome visitors to their joyful school. Everyone plays their part in helping this community to thrive.'

'Outdoor learning and swimming lessons take place onsite for all pupils every year. The farm and allotment are successfully educating pupils about growing food through first-hand experiences. Pupils love the running track and wide range of sporting opportunities. Music is also a high priority. Pupils learn instruments such as guitar, piano and violin.'

'The curriculum is ambitiously planned with precise knowledge, skills and vocabulary. Strong teamwork, training and communication ensures that there is strong subject knowledge across the teaching team. Leaders work effectively with parents to identify support for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).'

'Behaviour is positive in lessons and at playtimes. Pupils proudly meet the high expectations shared across leaders, trustees and staff.'

'Trustees and governors show deep understanding and care for their community. They provide strong support and challenge to promote school improvement. The inspirational headteacher leads by example. Teachers are unanimous in their praise for school leaders.'
