This will be a short and sweet Blog this week as I’m busy getting things organised for all the meetings I’ve got on Monday and Tuesday as well as for the progress “health check” next Thursday. Mrs Moore will be back in school to assess progress against our improvement priorities and I’m looking forward to showing her evidence of the impact read more…

Thanks to Mrs Williams and School Council for organising the Treasure Hunt last week, raising £46 from the game for Children in Need and to Mrs Duggins for baking some amazing cakes for the staffroom which raised a further £10 in donations.
