   Headteacher’s Welcome from Lizzie Mullarky

Dear families,

I am really proud to show you our school.  I first came here as Acting Head at the end of February 2017 and I became the substantive head in March 2018.  I am delighted to serve our varied community.  The children, families and staff members make this a special school to work in and be part of.  We have worked incredibly hard to make sure your children have an enduring primary experience.  We have a dedicated staff team that work hard so your child will have the best start to school. 

In the last year we have:

- Increased outcomes at the end of all Key Stages – EYFS, KS1 and KS2

- From being significantly below average in reading in 2017, the school is now above average with 82% of children reaching age related expectations

- Completely rejuvenated our school’s learning environment

- Put our welcome office in the beautiful old building and made the most of its history

- Put a new team in the EYFS and revamped the environment to a very high standard

- Introduced a new science and IT room and are now applying for the science mark

- Introduced a new arts room which is a very special facility and we are applying for the arts mark

- Have developed a reading challenge that has raised the profile of reading and developed home libraries for children

- Revamped both playgrounds and the Woodland trail

- Set up a school library

- Gained the Bronze Games Mark

- Gained a healthy schools award for our breakfast club

- Introduced Talk For Writing which is raising attainment in this area

This year, 2018-2019, we will be focussing on

- Maths mastery

- Phonics

- Brackenbury Best – including Hot Choc Friday 

With ambition, enthusiasm and drive we have achieved a great deal in a year - imagine what we will do with another one!
