Quotations from the recent Ofsted visit January 2019:

  • “Outcomes have improved because of strong subject leadership.”
  • “The behaviour of pupils is good. There is an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect across the school. Pupils’ conduct is calm and orderly.”
  • “Staff morale is high. They believe that leaders and governors take staff members’ well-being and workload into account and they feel well supported by the school.”
  • “Staff new to the school feel very well supported by their more experienced colleagues and the packages of training and support on offer.”
  • “Comprehensive induction and training programmes offered by senior leaders and the link advisor ensure that they very quickly establish themselves in their posts.”
