Headteachers message

It has been another busy week in school and I have enjoyed seeing so many excited faces every time it has snowed. I have had the pleasure of teaching in Year 6 this week and the children have been working hard in preparation for their Mock SATS next week. Having led the Achievement Assembly this morning, I know that there has been lots of hard work across the school linked to our LEARN values.

Today, Mr Clarke and Mrs Coote have attended some training that will ensure that we continue to drive improvement across the school and will enable us to have this externally validated too.

I am looking forward to the EYFS and LS parties tonight and would like to remind you of the US one next Friday- time to dig out my dancing shoes!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.

M Clarke
