We are very proud of our school and believe we have much to celebrate. We are a comprehensive school with Specialist Status in Mathematics and Computing and provide a high quality learning experience for all our pupils. We want them to enjoy coming to school and to achieve success as independent, confident learners who are able to fulfil their potential and exceed expectations.
We are delighted that Ofsted (May 2013) judged our school as ‘Good’ in all areas and highlighted that ‘standards are rising, teaching is good and becoming better and pupils’ attendance has improved. These improvements demonstrate the school’s strong capacity for further improvement’. As a small rural school we are able to provide a stable and caring community for every pupil and Ofsted confirmed that ‘relationships are very good. Pupils are polite and friendly towards adults and treat each other with consideration and respect’. It was also noted that our ‘pupils enjoy school and are keen to do well’.
Our motto is ‘in pursuit of personal excellence’ for all and we offer a wide range of opportunities and experiences in and out of the classroom to develop and inspire our pupils as young learners. We want to encourage and foster in them a range of positive attributes, skills and attitudes to prepare them for a rapidly changing world beyond school.
The staff, governors and I are dedicated to taking the school forward with the achievement and well-being of our pupils at the heart of everything we do. We believe we offer something very special to all our pupils as part of our learning community.
