Inspiration, Aspiration, Collaboration, Expectation

Welcome back to the summer term. We have lots planned for the term and some trips,  clubs and activities have already begun. Year 1 have already enjoyed Felixstowe and visiting the fort and feedback from children and parents is they had a wonderful time and people in Felixstowe commented how wonderful we were too! Hopefully you have received my letter about the Ofsted report. If you would like to read the report it can be found at . I will be holding a 'tea with the head' session on  Thursday 7th May at 2.30pm, where there will be opportunity for informal discussion about items you might like considered for our new development plan and the Ofsted. I look forward to meeting some of you there.
