  1. Our clear commitment to a high quality educational experience for all pupils.
  2. The overall management of the school and the effective leadership of the School Principal and In School Management Team.
  3. The high standard of teaching, pastoral care and generally very good quality of pupils’ learning outcomes.
  4. The very good level of pupil behaviour, attendance and engagement in learning.
  5. The high standard of parental involvement and communication within the school community.
