Parent View gives parents/carers the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child's school, from the quality of the teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don't have to wait until the school is being inspected. 

Our last full Ofsted inspection was in June 2015 when the inspection team commented that “Since September 2014 there have been considerable improvements”. As a result the school was awarded an overall grading of “Good”.

Inspectors highlighted the good behaviour and safety of pupils across the school, and that they “get on well together and with their teachers and value the feedback that teachers give them.”  They also praised the fact that “Pupils are expected to do the best they can and respond well to the challenges teachers provide.”

A subsequent short inspection in June 2019 confirmed that the school remains a "Good" school.
