Pupils behave well in classes, around the school and at playtimes...

“Pupils behave well in classes, around the school and at playtimes. This is because staff understand the individual needs of the pupils well. They create a calm, inclusive atmosphere which helps pupils to feel safe and secure. Bullying is very rare. Any that does happen is dealt with quickly by leaders.”
