Head Teacher’s Message
Around fifty colleagues from our primary schools visited lessons immediately after half term and were impressed by the calm, purposeful working environment. Thank you to all parents who have encouraged their children to be on time and to participate in lessons. The next challenge is to persuade your child to make full use of their many talents. Many of them lack the confidence needed to achieve the top grades or do not want to put the hours of work in to their studies to achieve excellent results. In some cases they need help in making sure that they know their times tables and can spell key words. Please help us to help your child by taking time to discuss what they are learning and to test them on what they know.
