In some cases, particularly in KS1, FSM children have closed the gap to non-FSM children nationally (Please note Y6 was a small cohort of 10 children)

  • In comparison to 2015 figures, attendance for 2016 dropped to just under 94%. This was due to an unusually high absence in KSI because of a chicken pox epidemic
  • School had only one exclusion in 2015 – 2016
  • Children’s behaviour in and out of class is good and they have good attitudes to learning. Children sustain effort and work together well to learn from each other. (External SIP report Summer 2016)
