Leaders from within the school and the wider trust were commended for their unwavering commitment to the school’s improvement. Their vision, strategic planning, and ability to inspire and motivate staff and children played a pivotal role in the school’s success.

The report praised the school’s teachers and support staff for their passion, dedication, and tireless efforts to create a nurturing learning environment. The report describes the school as ‘an oasis of calm’ where pupils flourish academically, socially and emotionally. 

The inspectors were impressed by the trust’s rigorous curriculum offer, effective teaching methods, and the high standards of achievement and progress demonstrated by children across all year groups.
