It was pleasing to receive the following letter from Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Standards, this week.
“I would like to congratulate you, your staff and your pupils for the very high standard that pupils in your school have achieved in reading in the 2016 key stage assessments.
Your school’s results, as published on 15 December, show that 100 per cent of your pupils reached or exceeded the expected standard in reading at the end of key stage 2. This means that your school is in the top 1% of primary schools in England for achievement in reading.
We want to ensure that every child has the necessary fluency in reading to prepare them for a successful secondary education and beyond, and your school has provided this to all your pupils.
Thank you for your hard work and professionalism in producing such high standards and congratulations again to you and your staff for all you have achieved.”
It’s great to be able to share such good news with our children, families and staff team. Such noteworthy achievements are the result of everyone in our school community working together as effectively as possible to ensure the very best outcomes for all our children.
