The report, just published following their visit last month, highlights many positive strengths, with emphasis on how well the school looks after the personal development and welfare of pupils and ensures good behaviour.

It also highlights areas to further develop in order to get back to a ‘good’ Ofsted grade. These include the effective monitoring of teaching by middle and senior leaders, bringing achievement and progress up to consistently high levels and using assessment data to challenge pupils in their learning.

Headteacher Ben Hulbert said: “There is still a lot of very hard work to be done but we have a hugely committed team that have already identified the change that is needed in order to improve rapidly.

“I would like to thank all the parents and carers who gave such positive feedback during the inspection, governors for the vital role they play in moving school forward and for their role during inspection, and all staff for the hard work they put in every day.

“I would also like to thank every single pupil – they are a credit to our school and to their parents.

“It goes without saying that we are totally committed to providing a high quality education with constantly improving outcomes, to raising the expectations of every pupil, and to ensuring every pupil reaches their full potential in and out of the classroom.”
