Key strengths highlighted:

  • We provide free school uniform to those who most need it through our Uniform United Reuse scheme. 
  • We have strong partnerships with our Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller community, which has been highly recognized nationally.
  • Pupils are ambitious about future careers, with many desiring to go to university.
  • The curriculum has been transformed, with a clear progression of knowledge and skills being embedded in all foundation subjects.
  • Pupils talk about their learning with confidence and enthusiasm, and they retain key knowledge over time, supporting strong outcomes by the end of Key Stage 2.
  • Our safeguarding arrangements are effective, and leaders use appropriate strategies to ensure that pupils attend school and address those who are persistently absent.
