Artsmark Gold Award
At the end of last term we heard some very exciting news:
The first news was that we have achieved Artsmark Gold Award. This is a national award in recognition for all the amazing music, art and drama we do each year. I am particularly grateful to Mrs Thomas and Mrs Battista for their work on the application and to all the staff who put so much time and energy into making sure that our children receive an excellent Arts education. We look forward to some more fantastic exhibitions and productions this year!
The second piece of news is that we have been chosen by the DFE to be an English Hub. We understand that there are about 35 schools across England that have been chosen to help support other schools in their teaching of early reading and writing. We have yet to hear more news about this but this is a very exciting project which will also ensure that we train, attract and keep the very best staff and also help other children to be successful in their learning.
If anyone is interested in training as a teacher, please speak to Janine Ashman for further details.
