We have received many very positive comments from Ofsted regarding our children’s attitudes to learning, the impact of our life values, our support of British Values and our welcoming, caring ethos:
‘The academy’s ‘life values’, such as kindness, friendship, determination and equality, enable pupils to show very positive attitudes to others and tolerance and respect for people from all faiths and cultures. They understand the difference between right and wrong and that their actions bring consequences. ‘ OFSTED 2015
‘The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils are very positive about all aspects of life in the academy. They show great respect for one another and for adults. ‘ OFSTED 2015
‘Pupils are very enthusiastic and come to school eager to learn. They are courteous and behave extremely well in class and around the building. They are cheerful and well mannered, determined to do their best. They have a real thirst for knowledge. ‘ OFSTED 2015
‘Pupils understand about democracy and the rule of law and fairness. They are very well prepared for life in modern Britain. ‘ OFSTED 2015
The key drivers that underpin our ethos and values are our ‘8 Life Values’. We have weekly assemblies and lessons about our Life Values and parents are asked, through the newsletter, to talk with their children about them at home. We do poster competitions, award postcards and bookmarks and are committed to ensuring that all members of our school community are role models for our children.
