Quality of Education
Children are provided with broad and rich experiences through a contextually relevant, holistic and decolonised curriculum which celebrates uniqueness and has a rigorous focus on diversity, equality and inclusion.
Children acquire a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of maths through embedded and sustained teaching and learning of Maths Mastery, resulting in attainment exceeding that of pupils nationally.
Children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) are provided with an individually adapted and ambitious curriculum that meets their needs, develops their knowledge, skills and abilities and enables them to demonstrate competence with increasing fluency and independence.
Behaviour and Attitudes
Children continue to be supported by an intelligent, fair and effective approach to behaviour. Staff have a deep understanding of how to employ emotion coaching to support children with additional needs.
Children are given access to a wide, rich set of experiences in a coherently planned way. The opportunities for children to develop their talents and interests are of exceptional quality, and there is strong take-up by children. In particular disadvantaged pupils benefit from this support and provision
Leadership and Management
Staff explore the curriculum and their own CPD with increased passion, engagement and a visible impact on the quality of education. The adults in our school embody, embrace and demonstrate the same passion to learn and improve that we champion in our students.
Children are highly motivated and deeply engaged by high quality provision. They sustain high levels of concentration and are eager to join in. Children share and cooperate well, demonstrating self-control and respect for others. Staff demonstrate the ability to move the children forward in their learning.
