Teachers engage and interest the pupils well by providing a good range of curriculum experiences, particularly first-hand experiences on which pupils can base their learning. These are enhanced by visitors and a good variety of trips out of school, all of which add relevance to learning. A good start has been made at using information and communication technology to support learning in other subjects, though the school recognises this as an area for development. Teaching assistants play a valuable role in many lessons. They are not restricted to working with pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities, but sometimes work with more able pupils, so extending their learning and giving pupils with special educational needs opportunities to work independently. The very good relationships between adults and pupils mean that pupils are keen to do well."
