In the summer of 2015, we were given the opportunity to invite the Investors In Pupils invigilators into school. They were looking to see if we were confident in giving our pupils a voice and a chance to be involved in their own education. We were assessed on 5 key areas:

  • Attendance
  • Behaviour
  • Classroom management
  • Induction
  • Learning

 With flying colours, we passed! Please read the letters below from the chief assessor, praising us for a whole host of things! Well done to all the children and staff involved.
