Happy New Year
A warm welcome back to all children, families and staff after the festive celebrations. The New Year of 2019 will be an historic year for the school as we complete our first year as a full primary school. For the first time we will have children completing Year 6 and leaving us for their High School adventure, what an exciting year we have to look forward to.
We are a “Get Reading. Keep Reading. Change Everything.” school
We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. Our children do well in the phonics screening check and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers with the best chance of success in the KS1.
Ruth Miskin Training recognises us for teaching the programme with fidelity and passion – we know what it takes to make reading and writing pleasurable and rewarding for our children.
This badge recognises that we:
- Raise standards in reading and writing for our children
- Are all expertly trained by Ruth Miskin Training
- Gain the latest programme updates through regular visits from our Ruth Miskin Consultant Trainer
- Support our most vulnerable readers with extra one-to-one teaching every day.

New Nursery & Reception Outdoor Area
After around two years of planning we finally have our new Outdoor Area for Reception and Nursery children. We have created areas for play and learning which include a dry river bed and water feature, a workshop, an outdoor kitchen, sandpit and even a Hobbit Hole! Cool Canvas who designed and built the area for us have made a video of the build to show you how it grew.
