In 2017 we set ourselves a goal- Dare to Dream, daring to make a difference at every level, nurturing and supporting the health, development, learning and wellbeing of each child. And making a difference we certainly have! 

Our dedicated and committed staff in teaching teams have worked incredibly hard through explicit instruction to successfully lift the learning to new and exciting heights. The students have been given many opportunities to lead the learning and use and understand the power of the language of learning. This achievement is evident in the students report comments on their learning and progress throughout this year.

Our Building a Learning Community nights and Learning Conversations continue to provide opportunities for parents to actively engage with their child in learning.

Our 2017 Celebration Night was true evidence of confident learners, who have a ‘can do attitude’ and a growth mindset. The children were proud to showcase their achievements and need to be commended for their effort and hard work.
