The staff and Leadership Team are fantastic. (Staff Feedback 2023)

Court Fields is a happy and welcoming school. Pupils feel proud to attend.

Leaders have created a culture where hard work is expected.

Leaders offer high-quality professional development to staff, communicate effectively with them,

and prioritise their wellbeing. As a result, staff morale is high. (Ofsted ‘Good’, 2023)
