Raising Achievement - How you can help at home...

  • Even in the digital age we believe handwriting remains an important skill and key tool in communicating ideas and knowledge. We always focus on good presentation of work to reflect this and to encourage our pupils to take pride in all that they do.
  • We believe that reading is not only a key skill but that it should also be a source of joy, inspiration and knowledge. Children should be reading for pleasure, ideally across a range of genres and should develop reading stamina by regularly reading books of longer length which may be more challengeing.
  • These sentiments are reflected in the findings of Ofsted's recent surveys of schools with successful reading outcomes.
