“The overall effectiveness of the school is good. The Headteacher is an inspirational leader and the strong leadership shown by the senior team has galvanized the school community and taken them on a journey of reflection and development. The Headteacher’s passion and drive have led to an overwhelmingly positive sense of community and care within the school. She has been ably supported by effective governors at the school, who set challenging expectations”. DCI June 2018
