Overall school judgement - Graded as: Good


I am delighted to report that Ofsted has agreed with our judgements that we are a 'good' school with many outstanding elements. During our two day inspection we had several feedback meetings with the Lead Government Inspector where we were able to listen to some of the overwhelmingly positive findings from their visit. There are only two action points highlighted for us to work on and we will of course digest this information in time and put a plan of action together. 


I would like to share some of the key comments made by the lead inspector during our feedback sessions:
