Achievements 2016-2017

We have had another good year with high achievement in most areas of school life. Our children are happy and fulfilled; we have enhanced our provision with extensive extended services. The school is host to many clubs and community activities and we continue to develop links around the world. We have some outstanding teachers whose highly-effective teaching is enabling the children to make the best progress, which we monitor even more closely. We know what we have to do to improve further and everyone is set to work hard and enjoy our next school year.

Our Governors are supportive and effective at driving improvements in standards. We aspire to be outstanding in every aspect of school life.

Our school’s aim is to give each child the best start possible, but we can only do that if you work closely with us. Please let us know what we need to do better and give us the chance to do it!
