Quotes from the report:

" Teaching assistants and teachers manage behaviour and pupils' learning effectively together. "

" Teachers usually use their good subject knowledge well and set high expectations for learning to ensure that pupils build on their prior learning. As a result, they make good progress. "

" Pupils behave well in lessons and around the school. Their attendance has significantly improved and they have good attitudes to learning. Pupils feel safe and are happy at school. "

" Pupils across the school make good progress from their different starting points, especially in English and maths. The youngest make good progress in reading and the oldest make good progress towards their examinations in most subjects. "

" Pupils with autism benefit from excellent support from teaching assistants so they make rapid progress in communication and social interaction skills. "

" The curriculum is broad, balanced and highly relevant to pupils’ needs, with a strong emphasis on developing the skills of communication, literacy and numeracy. "

" The curriculum enriches pupils’ learning through a range of well-planned visits, bringing visitors into the school and providing a wide variety of lunchtime and after-school clubs to promote enjoyment and personal development. "

" School assemblies provide pupils with time for reflection and promote moral development well. "

" Pupils’ social development is particularly enhanced through opportunities to work together in lessons, to take turns to share and to take responsibility in the school. "

" The school promotes equality of opportunity well by making sure that all pupils have full access to the curriculum and that pupils with different learning needs make equally good progress. "
