- The behaviour of pupils is good …. There is a positive, calm and orderly atmosphere in the school, in which the school site is treated with respect, just as pupils show respect for each other, adults and the school
- Pupils feel safe and well looked after
- Pupils are sure that they will be listened to if they have a problem
- The knowledge that teachers and other staff have of their pupils underpins a strong network of support for pupils’ physical and emotional health
