Easter Opening Times for Key Worker Children April 2020|
School is currently closed for the majority of children and would have been closing after school on Tuesday 7th April for the Easter holiday; however, school will be open for the children of key workers through the Easter break with the exception of Good Friday (10th April) and Easter Monday (13th April).
During the period from Wednesday 8th April until Friday 17th April the school kitchen will be closed and so children will need a packed lunch.
Please contact the school office on 01253 874785 if you need to book a place.

Our Mission Statement...
OFSTED February 2020|
We have received our latest OFSTED report which I am happy to share with you. Despite our overall grade remaining ‘Requires Improvement’ the report is overwhelmingly positive with the inspectors recognising the many improvements that have been made since our last inspection. Indeed, they gave us three ‘Good’ grades out of five.
They acknowledged that the school is now in a more stable position; they could not overlook previous poor outcomes for children but recognised that staff are working hard to ‘reverse the trend’ and that children in our Early Years are given a good start and are ‘developing their skills across different areas of learning’.
Especially pleasing was the fact that ‘evidence of rapid improvement’ in the teaching of early reading was identified. Also that ‘teachers make learning fun’ and that ‘staff create memorable experiences for pupils’.
Behaviour is praised throughout the report ‘Pupils are polite. They behave well in lessons, so everyone can learn.’ In addition, inspectors recognised that school provides well for children with additional needs and provide ‘intense support in building their resilience for learning.’
The impact of the new headteacher was acknowledged and it was recognised that the school governors ‘know the school well’.
School leaders will of course continue to work on areas identified in the report; recent improvements need to be fully embedded into school life in order to have the desired impact on outcomes for children. We will continue to further develop our new curriculum and extend the roles of the subjects leaders within that, however, we feel that we have an excellent foundation to build on as we continue on our journey.
