Dear Parents and Carers, 

It most certainly was hectic last week. I excitedly boarded the coach to head to Condover Hall with our Year 5 and 6 pupils, only to get a call asking me to return to school as soon as possible! 

As you know, we had a full inspection from Ofsted last week. They visited classrooms, analysed planning and pupil books, spoke to groups of pupils, went onto the playground and spoke with teachers, parents and leaders. The Ofsted report should be available in 30 days, so we cannot share any outcomes of the visit until then. However, I would like to thank the Governors and Staff for their commitment to our pupils and the school. I also want to thank the pupils who most certainly let their lights shine for all to see speaking honestly and articulately to the inspectors. They make me proud to be called their Headteacher! I would also like to thank the teachers who attended the residential and held the fort. It is evident from the photographs on Class Dojo that it was an enjoyable experience for all. Lastly, I want to thank our parents and carers for your prayers and for completing the parent survey. In all things, we remember that God is the Master of our School and our lives.

Attendance W/C 27th June 2022:

Each school in the local authority has an attendance target that is set for them. This year our school attendance target is 97%. Of course, we do not expect children who are unwell to come to school. They need to stay at home and rest to get well. They also need to stay at home, so they do not pass on illness to others.

Year GroupAttendance %
Year 190%
Year 2100%
Year 396.67%
