Aspire, Aim and Achieve 

In school we have designed a new noticeboard which will enable us to highlight achievement by pupils each month. This board allows us to celebrate the achievement by a pupil from each year group plus the after school club. Certificates are awarded during a full school assembly on the last Friday of each month. 
 
We encourage all of our pupils to “Aspire, Aim and Achieve” in everything they do both in school and at home.
