The Lord Mayor of Newcastle and Lady Mayoress came to visit us on Thursday 30th April to congratulate us on our letter from David Laws, the Minister of State for Schools. In his letter David Laws said
" Your results show that you have improved in terms of the progress and attainment achieved by your disadvantaged pupils since 2011 and that you are highly effective in educating your disadvantaged pupils. It is clear that you and your staff have provided your pupils with a good start in life and prepared them well for secondary school.
In addition, your results show that 100% of your pupils gained level 4B or above in reading and maths and level 4 or above in writing. This makes you one of only 150 schools in the country to achieve this level of attainment"
The Lord Mayor of Newcastle talked to the children about his role and they asked him lots of questions!! They were very impressed with his electric car!!!
