Summer Reading Challenge


Kent County libraries are holding their annual summer reading challenge which this year is called the ” Big Friendly Read” in honour of Roald Dahl.
In September we would love the children to return to school with their certificates for completing their 6 books. These can be displayed in the school library. We intend to have a Roald Dahl themed week from 12th September so this would be excellent preparation for the children.

Our Ofsted Report

Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services, and Skills.  It is the government organisation tasked with inspecting and regulating care for children and young people.  This includes inspecting educational facilities for learners of any age. Read full report on Ofsted’s website.

British Values

The Government have made it a requirement to “create and enforce a clear expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs”.

Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is a sum of money allocated in addition to core school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers.
