standards of teaching, learning and achievement.
The review team was made up of four reviewers, who visited the school over two days in January.
During that time, they observed 19 lessons. They also spoke to groups of pupils and teachers, and
reviewed a sample of workbooks for English, mathematics, and some humanities subjects.
