Our School Evaluation Form (SEF) gives a clear focus on the areas we need to develop over the year. This year our focuses are on:

  • Reading - increasing pupils reading both in school and at home.
  • Attainment - ensuring that pupils achieve their potential in line with national expectations specifically in Reading, writing and Maths.
  • SEN - ensuring that the provision given to the all SEND children diminishes the attainment and progress gap between themselves and children with SEND.

The school term will finish on Friday 17th July 2020 and children are expected to return to school on Monday 7th September.

We hope you have a relaxing and restful summer holiday.
