Busy afternoon for house leaders

By | FS2, House Carmel, House Jericho, House Jordan, House Sinai, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

This afternoon house leaders have been very busy writing questionnaires.


They want to know your ideas to improve the school. Next week they will be coming into your classrooms to find out what you want. They will be asking you:

-How the school can help you form friendships?

-How the school can celebrate your talents?

-How the school can improve writing and the library area?

-How the school can improve worship?

Outstanding in all areas!

By | FS1, FS2, Newsletter, Religious Education, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5, Year 6

We are delighted to inform you about our recent SIAMS inspection. We have been judged as outstanding in all areas again for a second time. Thank you so much to the children, staff, church family, governors and parents who contributed to the inspection. I am sure that you all join with me in thanking our wonderful team for continuing to provide a safe school where our children can grow, thrive and fulfill their potential.
