‘Pupils say that teachers make learning fun. Teachers’ very high expectations can be seen both in the level of challenge in lessons and in the quality of the well-presented work in pupils’ books.


Pupils increasingly understand their own strengths and areas to improve and demonstrate their commitment to be ‘flying high’ in line with the school’s vision.


A parent typically described the ethos by saying: ‘You can see and feel the dynamic and positive atmosphere, beautifully behaved polite children and a willingness of teachers and pupils to be the best that they can be.’

SIAMS inspection

The school was inspected in March 2018 by the Church Schools Inspectorate and was judged to be outstanding. A copy of the inspection report can be found here.

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.”
