• Thank You for Your Support This Week

    Thank you everybody for your support this week with our ERO team and  the inconvenience of our strike action on Wednesday. The ERO team has now left and presented a Provisional Report to the Board of Trustees.  The main focus on this ERO visit was drilling down into data around our Target Students who need extra support in their learning.

    We are pleased with the end results which show significant acceleration rates across our Target Students outcomes for the first six months of this year.  

    Congratulations and well done all teachers.  Thank you to the invited parents who attended the meeting with the ERO team, we really appreciate your support.
