Year 5 and 6 finally managed to get away on their school trip, on the second attempt, after the first date was a complete washout!


Monday 28th was a glorious September day with blue sky and sunshine – rather different from the previous week, when the planned day for the trip was one of the wettest of the year!

Year 5 and 6 boarded a double-decker bus and headed south towards Dover and Samphire Hoe. The plan for the day was to discover how plants and animals had adapted to their habitats. There were many children working in a Darwinian way, walking the shore looking for clues and even finding some fabulous fossils. There were also activities planned for testing our skills of observation, touch and smell to answer questions regarding fossils.

  It really was an interesting day with Paul and Ranger Steve sharing their knowledge so freely. There are more photos of Year 5 and Year 6 for you to view.

 Our last OfSTED inspection was in March 2011.

The OfSTED report stated that we are 'good school', we have 'high standards of behaviour' and commended us on our 'caring family atmosphere'. The report also stated 'children make a good start in the Early Years Foundation Stage. They enter Year 1 with better than expected levels of attainment. In Years 1 to 6, this good start is fostered well by generally good levels of teaching so that by the time they leave, pupils' attainment is above average and their progress is good.'

No wonder we are so proud of our school!

Would you like to see some of our other recent achievements?
