Description of the school

This is a smaller-than-average school serving the local population. There is a significant proportion of pupils entering and leaving the school other than at the normal time of entry. There is also a high proportion of pupils with learning difficulties mostly relating to specific reading or writing difficulties but also some emotional and behavioural issues. Nobody has a statement of special educational need. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is low and all are able to communicate effectively in English. The inspector evaluated the overall effectiveness of the school and investigated the following issues: determining whether the achievement of pupils is good throughout the school and across subjects; establishing whether the personal development of pupils is as strong as the provision suggests in the school’s self-evaluation; and establishing whether the right actions are being taken at all levels of leadership to ensure the continuing success of the school. Evidence was gathered from lesson observations, interviews with the headteacher, senior leadership team and chair of governors, and discussions with pupils and staff. Other aspects of the school’s work were not investigated in detail, but no evidence was found to suggest that the school’s own assessments, as given in its self-evaluation form, were not justified, and these have been included where appropriate in this report.
