"Engagement in learning is high; pupils understand how to improve through appropriate pace and a variety of activities."

"Positive relationships at all levels help pupils feel valued and the work on growth mindsets results in an excellent climate for learning. Pupils said, 'it's all about learning' 'it's ok to make mistakes.'"
