Quotes taken from the report

The ‘Coniston Learning Behaviours’ are embedded in the school and pupils were able to tell me how these are helping them to learn.

Pupils feel comfortable in expressing their ideas and working collaboratively in classrooms where staff promote talk and discussion.

Teachers’ high expectations for the quality of pupils’ spoken language have a positive impact on pupils’ writing. As a result, pupils have a good grasp of technical vocabulary, write coherently and manipulate sentence structure appropriately across a range of genres and for different purposes.

Pupils told me they feel safe in school and would be comfortable talking to any member of staff should they have concerns or feel unhappy in any way. This is testament to the caring ethos that permeates the school at all levels.

The school involves parents fully and work collaboratively and sensitively when there are any concerns around the safety or welfare of vulnerable pupils.

Leaders have instilled in pupils a love of reading. Teachers’ raised expectations and a focus on high-quality texts have ensured that pupils develop their inference skills.
