The school has a committed family of staff, governors and parents/carers - we are exceptionally proud of our children and our community. Our inspection in October 2021 said:
‘Staff’s warmth, dedication and high expectations get pupils off to a flying start in this school. Pupils learn and play with energy and enthusiasm. They look forward to lessons and tackle their work conscientiously.’
‘All pupils and families are welcomed into the heart of the school’s generous community. If pupils have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), school leaders and staff make sure that the right support is in place. Pupils accept each other and enjoy being together, irrespective of different backgrounds, abilities or families.’
The successful candidate will drive the development of the school’s curriculum offer, ensuring that more pupils than ever before leave each stage of their educational journey well-prepared for their next.
