Headteacher comment

Everyone was delighted with the report and I am very proud of each member of our school community who has helped us achieve such a positive outcome. This gives us a solid, encouraging basis on which to improve standards even further; we have wonderful children in our school and it is a privilege to help our pupils reach their full potential.
