School Priorities 2016-2017
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 of our pupils further. Staff, pupils, parents and Governors were all consulted to seek their views about the key actions 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.
