"Sports has been amazing since September especially encouraging girls to have a football team. Athletics team have had great success. The great behaviour and teamwork in the school shines through the students. I feel the old success of the school is coming back. The staff are a breath of fresh air making the children want to work hard and be successful. My daughter is loving Year 6 and I feel the only way is up for her and the school setting good examples for the future years." (Parent Survey - Autumn Term 2017)


"Mrs Needs has employed fantastic new teachers over the last year that are supporting and challenging my son both in his school work and extra sporting activities. The homework is appropriate and well organised. The addition of the chickens and table tennis tables are evidence of a school on the up and that the school is interested in developing my child beyond the '3 Rs'." (Parent Survey - Autumn Term 2017)
