  • Currently, pupils are making  progress throughout  Reception. Any child who joins the school below what is typical for their age catch up quickly, as a result of effective intervention.
  • Boys began their learning journey with significantly fewer skills than girls, however this gap closed during the year and there is little difference between the progress made by boys and girls.
  • Additional government funding for disadvantaged pupils is spent judiciously.
