The report said: 'Leaders and managers work tirelessly to improve parental participation. A very successful Parents' Forum enables parents and leaders to discuss planned changes and help the drive to successful implementation. A number of parents spoke positively about this initiative.' Headteacher Paul Seeman said parents were very much a part of the school.
'We make an effort to build our school community,' he said. 'We view children's education as a partnership between parents and the school. For children, learning doesn't just happen between 9am and 3pm, they are learning all the time.'
The school, which has 100 pupils on roll, was noted for its competent use of technology, with pupils using iPads to write stories.
'We are looking to maintain our outstanding practice and be consistent. We will continue to do the best for our children,' Mr Seeman added. 'We believe children only get once chance at being young and we have to make sure they get the best schooling possible.'
