Through the eyes
- "Pupil's courteous and considerate behaviour makes the school a welcoming and safe place to be. They follow the school rules without fuss or complaint. Pupils are comfortable and relaxed in each other's company. They show respect to everyone they meet. Pupils view the differences between people as something to celebrate, not a reason to be unkind" OFSTED 2021
- "Just wanted to say a massive thank you for creating such a wonderful experience for my child. I was so worried as he didn't want to go on the Conway residential but he's come home and he didn't miss us as he was having too much fun. Thank you all so much" Year 6 Parent
- "Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) are fully included in the life of the school. Their learning needs are identified accurately and known by staff. This means that resources are carefully shaped to help these pupils access the same curriculum as their classmates. Pupils with SEND achieve as well as other in the school." OFSTED 2021
- "Thank you to all the staff involved in the Year 4 residential. My child has come home very mucky and missing a few items, but has had an absolutely fabulous time and can not stop talking about all the different activities they took part in." Year 4 Parent
- "The school's 'RESPECT' values are so well engrained that they are part and parcel of everyday life. Pupils genuinely understand how to treat each other, regardless of any differences. They are keen to play their part in the school community and beyond the school gates, acting as school counsellors, subject ambassadors and donating money to those less fortunate than themselves. Pupils are very well prepared to make a positive contribution to British society" OFSTED 2021
