School Self Evaluation has become an integral part of school development. We have devised a School Improvement Plan to help us identify our strengths and weakness. By devising this plan we hope to improve how our students can perform in the areas of literacy and numeracy.

To read our School Improvement Plan click here!!!

As you know we are aiming to improve the standard of spelling in our school. The reason is that our children, while performing way above the national average in reading, comprehension and general literacy, don’t reach these very high standards in spelling. We are looking at the way we teach and learn spelling and are making a concerted effort to raise the overall standard.

My contribution as Principal is to give monthly spelling tests taking the most difficult words from the two spelling programmes the classes use ( 3rd to 6th). ( Results with teachers)

Here are the lists for the January tests:
