Every member of our school community is extremely proud of the efforts of children in school!

As was the case in 2022, results for 2023 again evidence pupil outcomes which are higher than both local and national projected and provisional outcomes. The efforts of staff and everyone associated with school has been outstanding in our collective determination to reduce the adverse impact of the COVID pandemic on children’s learning and achievement.
