About the school:
This is a high performing school which was most recently judged 'Good' by OFSTED and was particularly praised for school-wide good behaviour and significant growth reading across KS1 and KS2. A large percentage of children are working at or above age-related expectations and this success is largely due to an experienced Headteacher who is passionate about their role and works hard to attain the highest standards of teaching and learning across the school.
