Inspector Report 

Letter to Parents  


‘Pupils are well-rounded individuals and are remarkably well prepared for secondary school.’

‘The school is a nurturing and caring environment. Pupils’ behaviour is impeccable. Pupils are keen to do well. They say they love their school.’

'Teachers provide pupils with the opportunity to understand their place in the wider world. An example of this work are the visits pupils make to the local care home to practise art with elderly residents. Pupils are proud that they are able to make a difference to the world around them. They are extremely happy and say they love their school.’

Inspection Report 

“The inclusive Christian ethos, where every child feels nurtured and valued as an individual, encourages children to express their thoughts with confidence and to know that their opinions will be valued.”

“Everyone works together as a team ensuring extremely strong relationships contribute to children’s positive attitudes to learning.”
