Recent Inspections

“Exceptional does not do this school justice.” Ofsted 2023

Our most recent inspection was November 2023. The report states there has been no change to this school’s overall judgement of good as a result of this ungraded (section 8) inspection. However, the evidence gathered suggests that the inspection grade might be outstanding if a graded (section 5) inspection were carried out now. The school’s next inspection will be a graded inspection.

Our previous Ofsted reports can be found below.

Our commitment to our pupils

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding. It is provided to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and those pupils who are not. It is designed to ensure that funding can reach the pupils who need it most. We are committed to ensuring that every pupil in our school can attain their highest achievement.

Since 2012, the Pupil Premium has increased. The reason for this increase is the allocation of FSM to pupils who have been eligible for FSM during any of the last six years (FSM Ever 6).

As our Primary Phase receives PE and sport premium funding, we have also published a report with the amount of premium received and a breakdown of how this is used.

Inspiring Achievement

Our personalised curriculum and broad Flexible Learning offer ensures that all pupils develop the skills they need to meet or exceed their personal targets both in and out of the classroom.

We are extremely proud of the excellent achievements of all our pupils.
