'Pupils spoken to, were adamant that no one would bully them in school. One pupil said: ‘That’s not how we do it here,’ echoing the words regularly used by the principal to reinforce high expectations of pupils’ behaviour.'
'The principal is a passionate and committed leader, demonstrating unfaltering belief in pupils and the community. She is supported by an inspirational deputy principal. Together they have been a ‘tour de force’, transforming learning at the school.'
'The focused work of the entire school team has ensured that attendance has continued to improve so that attendance is above national figures and the proportion of pupils persistently absent from school is below the national average.'
'The vice-principal has proved to be an inspirational coach and mentor, helping teachers to improve and refine their teaching to enable more pupils to make the progress of which they are capable.'
