  • You and the leadership team, together with governors, have maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection. Your leadership of the school is respected and valued by staff and parents and carers. You have an in- depth understanding of the school’s strengths and areas of weakness. Your evaluation of the school is comprehensive and accurate. Consequently, you have identified the priorities in areas requiring further improvement and your planning is well considered. Governors are kept well informed about school developments and the extent of both challenge and support has strengthened. Governors are supportive of the headteacher and make regular visits to the school in support of its further improvement. The external support provided by the local authority and the prospective Rutland Learning Trust has been instrumental in supporting leaders’ drive for improvement. This support has sharpened processes to ensure consistency, clearer accountability and improved subject leadership. The culture of the school is positive and welcoming, staff morale is high, and the pupils are polite and courteous. Pupils are proud to be at the school and describe it as a friendly and fair school.  OFSTED
