We are delighted to tell you that Ofsted have published the findings of the inspections they conducted on 31 January 2018. They have judged us to be ‘good’ schools overall with many areas of strength and effectiveness.


We would like to thank all of the parents, carers and friends who have supported us over the years and during the inspection period.


Please take the time to read through and find all the lovely things that the inspection teams had to say about our pupils and schools. The full reports are available below. 


"Parents value the effect the school is having on developing their children’s communication skills. "


"Pupils feel safe and they show an increasing knowledge of how to keep themselves safe."


"The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection."
