  Hello Visitor,

SATs Results

I am delighted to be able to report a strong set of SATs data for our departing Year 6 cohort. There will be much to analyse over the next few weeks but a short summary of attainment is shown on the chart and table below (alongside national data).

Our school data far exceeds the national average in all areas - reading, writing, maths, GPS (grammar, punctuation & spelling) and also the combined measure of RWM (this measures the % of children achieving the expected standard in all three of reading, writing and maths). 

A huge well done to our Year 6 cohort for reaching such a high level of attainment and for giving themselves an excellent platform to build on as they make their transition to secondary school.

% of pupils reaching the expected standard
  National  School
RWM 64% 93%
Reading 73% 100%
Writing 78% 100%
Maths 79% 93%
GPS 78% 100%

Childcare Provision 

I spoke to Get Active this week about the possibility of them operating their childcare provision before school (in addition to the after school childcare). If there is sufficient demand and if we can work out the logistics of how it would operate, then Get Active would aim to have this provision in place by the start of next academic year.  

Numbers of children attending the after school provision are gradually increasing and feedback from the sessions has been very positive and so the school is very hopeful that before school childcare would follow a similar pattern.

The school is keen to maintain its current before school supervision for those families who only require a very short period of childcare and so the current before school supervision would run separately and would therefore be unaffected.

It would help us and Get Active in our planning if you could complete our very short survey by following this link:

Get Active Breakfast Club survey

The school is very happy to respond to parental requests in this way and investigate whether there are sufficient numbers to run this provision.

Please complete the survey no later than Friday 19th July 2019
