Headteachers message

In celebration Assembly this week, I was so proud to see such a range of certificates to celebrate our values. More and more children are being rewarded Norms certificates which show our new approaches are truly embedding.

Over the last couple of weeks, many of our staff have been liaising with colleagues in other local settings, to discuss curriculum and subject leadership. Their feedback has been great and it’s great to know that all schools are on a similar journey with their knowledge rich curriculum.

Hope you have a great weekend!
