Auriol continues to be a good school.
Pupils are proud to attend this caring and inclusive school. They like their teachers and feel safe.
Staff have high aspirations for all pupils to achieve personal and academic success.
They enjoy their lessons, are eager to learn, and achieve well
Teachers expect pupils to work hard. Pupils respond very well to this.
‘Pupils are polite. They listen attentively to teachers and to each other. Pupils appreciate the encouragement their teachers give to help them express their views. Pupils grow in confidence as they move through the school. They contribute well to their community, for example by being playground ‘buddies’ and activity ‘leaders’. Pupils insist that bullying is rare. Should it occur, they trust the adults to sort it out.’
‘During the inspection, pupils brimmed with excitement. Half of them spent a day performing at the town’s professional theatre. Pupils showcased the talents they had practised in their performing arts clubs. Pupils benefit from these and other after school activities to extend pupils’ interests.’
