' We love coming to school each morning, we like the fact that we are helpful, kind and hardworking. Our teachers are nice and we are encouraged to use our manners. We share, we smile and we learn. We show respect, follow rules and always try hard. Everyone is treated fairly and we feel safe and cared for. We love our school!'
Pupil comments from questionnaires
' Standards of behaviour are good, pupils are polite, articulate and a credit to school. Children feel safe in school and are keen to learn. Pupils' enjoyment of school is reflected in their high rates of attendance. Parents are positive about the school, embracing the family atmosphere that school provides and the high levels of emotional support offered to their children. Children achieve well in early years and reading is a strength of the school.'
'Making school relaxed, fun, welcoming and safe.'
