“This is an outstanding school. This judgement is higher than the school’s slightly cautious view. Parents report: ‘This school is excellent and we are very happy with our children’s progress.’ The school is highly successful and knows itself very well. The excellent leadership and management of the headteacher are at the core of developments.”OFSTED
