Despite the turbulence of the last year, staff and pupils have shown resilience in their teaching and learning, maintaining the academic standards and highly successful outcomes for all pupils that we are accustomed to. The cancellation of SATs again this year has meant we have been able to focus more in Year 6 on preparation for the transition to secondary school. As well as teacher assessments, there has been plenty of time and opportunity to enjoy all the end of primary celebrations which the children look forward to: leading the musical; the outdoor activities weekend and simply experiencing being back in school together under more normal circumstances as the restrictions are gradually eased.
