The most recent external review states:
'The governing body is knowledgeable and supportive. Governors challenge leaders to ensure that the school continues to move forward. They have a good knowledge of the quality of teaching in the school, how this has improved and the steps being taken to improve it further. They ensure that performance management is linked closely to pay progression. They also check that safeguarding is secure. Governors play an active role in the development of the premises and fully understand the data on how well pupils do and how this relates to schools nationally. Governors attend appropriate training and meet regularly with the Head teacher to discuss issues arising from the management of the school. They understand fully how the pupil premium money has enabled small group teaching and the effect this has had on the attainment of these pupils. They have fully supported the senior leaders and have not been afraid to tackle inadequate teaching to help move the school forward.'
