Link Adviser Comments - this is a school causing concern, under scrutiny from the National Strategies and DCSF because of the low standards of attainment at the end of KS2. On a positive note the school is predicting a significant rise in standards in 2009 which could take the school above floor targets for the first time in 6 years. School is slowly downsizing to a two form entry.
Link Adviser highlights and developments – HT only in second year of appointment and has created a standards oriented approach to school improvement. School ethos and morale are both good given the very challenging circumstances in which it works, e.g. school has over 30 children looked after by the LA more than any other school (including secondary). Very supportive senior leadership determined to support HT in raising standards. Excellent Music provision.
