School Priorities 2017-2018
We started the school year by reflecting on the successes of the previous year and looking ahead at what we can do to improve the achievements and outcomes of our pupils further. Staff, pupils, parents and Governors were all consulted to seek their views about the key actions that we need to take this year. Thank you to all members of our school community for contributing to this very important process of school evaluation and forward planning.
Thank you to all the parents and carers who were able to attend the School Priorities Family Learning Coffee Morning. If you were unable to attend this very important meeting, please click on this link to read the information that was shared at our School Priorities Morning.
