Inspection October 20 2015

Overall effectiveness Good

"The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. You wasted no time in acting on the recommendations of the previous report and have continued to improve the standard of education all pupils receive, especially those supported by the pupil premium (additional government funding for those entitled to free school meals or looked after). Over time, you have sustained the capacity of the staff team by recruiting new members with fresh ideas and energy. Meanwhile you have enabled long-standing staff to continue developing their experience and leadership and to share their expertise."; "Parents value very highly the way the school involves them in the education of their children, the quality of communication between home and school and the readyavailability of staff."
