The Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted) regulates and inspects to achieve excellence in the care of children and young people, and in education and skills for learners of all ages.
Following a recent visit by Ofsted’s inspectors (July 2023), we are delighted that the school was once again graded as ‘Good’ overall.
Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your the school, from the quality of teaching, to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour.
They will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect, and when.
