Welcome Back

Welcome back to school for the last term of the academic year. I hope everyone has had a happy and restful holiday.

Last term was certainly busy. The external assessments that pupils sit in May always add to the demands on teachers. This year we also had external full moderation visits for KS1 and KS2 and Early Years as well as an external check on our secure storage of tests. All the assessors complimented St John’s staff on their excellent provision for children and their judgements which showed that they “knew their pupils inside out”. I know the teachers concerned felt thoroughly supported by their colleagues, many of whom helped collate and present evidence for the assessors. I feel privileged to work alongside such dedicated and skilled staff and am pleased that their hard work and professionalism have been recognised.
