IMPORTANT INFOPosted by R. Clarke Fri, March 09, 2018 10:08AM
Dear Parents and Carers
As mentioned in our recent newsletter, the school had a Sustaining Improvement Inspection in early February.
The report has now been published and is available on the ETI (Education and Training Inspectorate) website DENI ETI. As you will read in the report, not all classrooms could be visited during this inspection.
However, the inspectors commented favourably on the quality of teaching in the classrooms which they did visit; they observed good practice and in particular made reference to the high quality of the teachers' planning, how well the teachers knew their children and how engaged pupils were. The inspectors spoke to a number of pupils and were impressed with how articulate the pupils were and how positively they spoke about their learning.
Whilst the inspectors could not draw an overall conclusion at present, it is clear that the school is moving in the right direction and that improvements have been made since the last inspection. We would wish to thank all staff involved.
If you have any queries about the report please feel free to contact us.
S Cranston and R Clarke.

We are keeping an eye on weather updates that would affect tomorrow. Hopefully all will be running smoothly but please keep an eye on the website. As before, if school is to close, you will receive a text message.

School will be closed today. Ice along with snow means difficult driving conditions so in the interest of everyone's safety the decision has been made to remain closed.
Hopefully children can build snowmen!
Please ensure that neighbours know about this situation. Texts have been sent to parents and staff.
