"Pupils say that the school is inclusive and has a genuine community feel".

"Pupils behave well in lessons and say that they are able to learn".

"The school offers a wide range of opportunities for personal development within lessons, for example within the global citizenship programme. They like the many opportunities that the school offers them. For example, there is a wide range of activities offered after school. Pupils value these opportunities and take-up is high".

"The school has high expectations for pupils’ behaviour. Low-level disruption is rare. The school is a calm and orderly community".

“The school is highly inclusive.  Pupils in the specialist resource base receive expert help and support.”

“Pupils are proud of their school. Pupils welcome and accept each other regardless of their background and so the school is a friendly, orderly environment.”

“The school's policies and procedures for keeping pupils safe are well organised and effective.”

"Both pupils and parents say that any bullying that happens is dealt with quickly and effectively."

"Senior leaders continually seek improvements in teaching and learning.  They innovate and invest in staff development."

"Governors are knowledgeable about the performance of the school and, therefore, they challenge senior leaders robustly over the progress of specific groups of pupils".
