    The headteacher is supported in her leadership of the school by a skilled and dedicated team of leaders.

  • Passionate, experienced and inspiring educators.

    Ofsted Report 2019.

     

    "The headteacher has implemented a robust assessment system which records and tracks

    pupils’ attainment and progress against the school’s curriculum aims. This new framework

    has raised expectations and added clarity to teachers’ planning and, consequently, their

    teaching. The school’s assessment procedures are underpinned by focused discussions

    about the performance of individual pupils. This is allowing leaders and staff to intervene

    swiftly if specific pupils are identified as not making the progress expected of them."
