This is a nurturing environment where children, staff, parents and governors know each other and share a common understanding of the School’s purpose – to ‘aim high’ and through shared understanding of Gospel values, ensure that the potential of every child is fully achieved. Our children are happy, sociable, well-behaved and value our diversity, which enriches everything we do. We are recognised as ‘outstanding’ by the local authority and are confident this will be endorsed at our next Ofsted inspection.

National Young Writers’ Awards

We are proud to announce that our school received a Celebration Assembly for sending the most entries into this year’s National Young Writers’ Award competition about ‘Heroes’. Our children wrote about their parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles, teachers and professions they admired such as firefighters and people who work in the Armed Forces.  Some children also wrote about people such as Sir David Attenborough, Nelson Mandela and Leonardo da Vinci.

Rebecca, from ExploreLearning, came into our school on Thursday to lead a Celebration Assembly. She awarded prizes to some of the entries that her team believed stood out. She said that these entries used many language skills to engage the reader. 

She finished her assembly by awarding a special medal to an entry she believed extended itself. This entry was about a superhero school filled with important people, from Monstrous Maths Teachers to Miss Angel the class teacher. I am very proud to announce that Lily Boutland in Year 4 won this award. Well done Lily, we are all so proud of you!

A huge thank you to all staff, parents and carers who helped with these entries. We are looking forward to seeing what the National Young Writers’ Award topic will be for next year. Happy writing!
