‘Pupils’ personal development and their understanding of how to keep themselves safe are well developed through the curriculum and by the character education programme. You have ensured that safety, rights and responsibilities, well-being and relationships education are well embedded. Consequently, pupils’ mature understanding of these issues is preparing them well for the next stage in their education.’ OFSTED 2018
