"This is an outstanding school. Pupils are extremely keen to learn and are very well prepared for the next stage of their education. The headteacher and senior staff provide a clear and ambitious vision for the future and staff are very highly motivated to achieve it. Pupils, parents and carers are fully supportive and extremely proud of their school."



  • Personal development - All stakeholders are motivated and have a positive attitude to learning and life. The focus will be on ‘being your best self’ and will include an aspirations strand as well as strategies for tackling situations, decision making and happiness.
  • Ensure our curriculum is coherently planned and sequenced towards cumulatively sufficient knowledge and skills for future learning; pupils’ work is of a consistently high quality. This will involve gathering evidence from books, children’s comments, teachers’ planning etc.
  • A rigorous approach to the teaching of reading develops learners’ confidence and enjoyment in reading. We will be auditing present practice and making changes to ensure that all children can achieve age related expectations.
  • Action Research - Teaching and learning are enhanced as teachers research aspects of pedagogy relevant to our curriculum intention. All teachers will be required to take on an aspect of research related to the School Development Plan.
  • Narrowing the Gap - All children, regardless of ethnicity or gender, achieve to the best of their ability in reading, writing and maths. This will focus on how we engage with parents to help them to support their children.
