The school offers a broad and balanced curriculum and staff work hard to ensure that children have a happy and enjoyable experience at school. Similarly the school works hard to ensure that children from a wide range of communities are respected and supported; not just by staff but by each other. Care, guidance and support of pupils, together with community cohesion were recognised as outstanding by the school’s last Ofsted inspection (Oct 2010).
Whilst English and Maths standards are good, and continue to rise, pupils are engaged in the study of a wide range of subjects. These in turn are enhanced by a range of out of school visits (the school has its own mini-buses), residential opportunities and extra-curricular clubs and groups; this latter range from the Bollywood Dance Club, to the Gardening Club, Football and Cricket Teams through to the Choir and Orchestra.
The school is also proud of its environmental and sustainable credentials. In 2009 the school had a new Nursery built; this was of wooden frame with hay bale wall construction, a reconstituted slate/resin roof and is clad in sustainably sourced wood. In turn the Nursery is ground source heated, has its own solar panels and gains electricity from both a wind turbine on the site and a large array of photovoltaic panels: all in all a very innovative building.
