School Inspection Report - 2014

Teaching is based on strong understanding of the aptitudes, needs and prior attainments of the pupils, including those with special educational needs. The school has very good systems of marking and regular assessment against both the school’s aims and external frameworks. Information and progress data are shared across the school and with parents, and play a key role in teachers’ planning and the ensuring of pupils’ progress.

The development of the pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness is outstanding. Pupils live up to the school’s high expectations and their behaviour is excellent.

The arrangements to safeguard and promote pupils’ welfare, health and safety are excellent. Safeguarding is at the heart of the school.

The school’s organisation and management are outstanding. Senior leaders have a clear vision for the future development of the school which is firmly focused on a relentless drive for constant improvement.
