We enjoyed a great end to the year in July with a succession of good news stories! First of all we had our Year 3 and 4 girls becoming the regional champions in the Key Steps finals in Durham – a great achievement which even warranted a half page article in the Evening Chronicle! Next came the news that school had won an innovation award in the School Sports Partnership Awards 2017. This was followed by the news that we had achieved the GOLD standard in the School Sports Awards for 2016 / 2017! So, that was PE covered. Next came the PIE innovation awards, and yet again we enjoyed success with our Year 5 class becoming Regional Champions through their innovative Paraloop designs – a brilliant achievement!
Last but certainly not least was the news that we had impressed our inspectors so much that we have moved back to GOOD, and even managed OUTSTANDING for behaviour and personal development. The inspectors recognised the quality of our fantastic children and staff, and that was the perfect way to end the year.
The future looks bright for next year, so enjoy your holidays, take a well deserved rest, and I look forward to welcoming you all back in September!
