Ofsted, January 2012:
This is a good school. Pupils have positive attitudes to their work, behave well and are keen to learn new things. They enjoy coming to school and feel safe.

Ofsted Report January 2012

We put learning at the heart of everything we do and we have worked hard in recent years to develop an engaging, creative curriculum that is relevant for all of the children in our demographically diverse community. We are committed to developing the whole child and, in particular, want our children to become active learners.
