Our OFSTED inspection outcome June 2018:

‘Overall attendance is now just above national averages. So, too, is the attendance of disadvantaged pupils. It is now similar to that of their peers. You have worked vigorously and effectively to address past weaker attendance. You have used a range of carefully targeted and sensitive, yet forthright, strategies to engage closely with both pupils and families who, for one reason or another, find regular attendance challenging. You are clear that there is still more to do and you have put in train a further series of carefully measured actions to support attendance. Pupils told me that they are very clear about the importance of regular attendance. This is because you have used a range of imaginative and effective strategies to help ensure that pupils understand its importance. These include regular inputs during assembly time and weekly updates and competitions that encourage attendance.’
