"Pupils play an active role in the school. They take great pride in their responsibilities, including being school librarians and classroom monitors. This supports pupils to develop a sense of responsibility and respect for others."

"Leaders prioritise the teaching of reading. Staff are well trained in the school’s phonics programme. In the early years, adults prioritise developing children’s language and communication skills through songs and rhymes. Pupils read with increasing accuracy using the sounds they know to read unfamiliar words. Books are usually well matched to the sounds pupils know. Pupils who need to catch up with their phonics receive the right support and develop into confident readers."
