It is hard to believe that the year has passed so quickly. It has been a truly wonderful year in school, with a return to whole school collaboration and the children have all flourished. I am incredibly proud of our whole school community with how hard everyone has worked and putting the children’s needs at the heart of everything we have done.
It is been an absolute pleasure working with all our pupils and our families this year. We are very grateful for your support and I am personally very proud of our school community.

Please find the assessment results for the key areas in school but please be aware that it still needs to be validated by the DFE. The data is looking very positive and more importantly, it is supported by what we are seeing in school. This is a result of the changes made, hard work of the staff, your support as families and your children working hard. There will continue to be changes and we will continue to make sure all pupils get the very best school experience.
EXS is working at age related expectation.
GDS is working at greater depth / above age related expectation.
GLD means good level of development and children must meet the standards in all seven areas of learning.
