What is the most important thing that makes this school outstanding?

  • Pupils who come to this school make exceptional progress, they leave our school at the end of Year 2 with outcomes that are significantly above national average. This is due to the quality of teaching and overall provision.
  • We work hard to make the UNICEF Convention real to the lives of our children, helping them to explore concepts of fairness, respect and responsibility.

Quality of Teaching
