Dear parents/carers,

Obviously the governors are disappointed alongside the Headteacher with the SATs results this year. However we have been kept fully informed of and involved in all decisions made throughout the year.

With this in mind, we are confident that the Senior Leadership Team will evaluate practices and make the changes necessary to ensure that this is not repeated

Emma Stone and Mark Lander (Chair and Deputy Chair of Governors)

This year, although our teacher assessments are accurate, our SATS results did not reflect this. We have made a lot of changes this year and brought in a more broad and balanced curriculum but have also formed partnerships with 8 other schools in the local area. Through regular moderation (checking of quantity, quality and expectation to support judgements) of books we know that the majority of our children are working at expected or above. Unfortunately looking at the SATs tests our children just didn’t achieve their potential on the day which is something we are reflecting on for next year. Papers have been looked at in detail and some are being sent for a review of marking. What we do know is that our children have a good grounding for the range of subjects in secondary school and are able to match and compete with their peers. I am proud of all the hard work this year by both teachers and children alike.
