Quality of teaching, learning and assessment
A contributory factor to the outstanding teaching overtime is the precise planning that is consistent throughout each year group. Teachers have excellent knowledge of gaps in pupils learning because they consistently assess pupils’ learning in lessons according to well-defined success criteria.
Teachers’ subject knowledge is a strength and the effective training that staff have received on asking probing questions to deepen understanding is paying dividends.
Learning environments are beguiling and enable pupils to develop their skills of independence when they get stuck in lessons.
