Growing Up In North Yorkshire…the results are in.
This is the survey that North Yorkshire County Council carries out every two years on all schools, judging how effectively the school are supporting their children when it comes to wellbeing and behaviour. We are so proud to announce that our data shows that all the hard work, dedication and commitment from staff and yourselves to promote a safe and warm learning environment has really paid off. The children are telling us very clearly that they enjoy coming to school, but most importantly they feel safe and understand what is expected of them whilst they are here. Those of you who have been with us from the start of the ‘special measures to good’ journey will know this was not always the case, and it is a testament to the children and how responsive they have been that the school have been able to make such a transformation. Miss McGuinn says ‘this has not been an easy journey, and the staff and children have worked tirelessly to promote a school culture of kindness and respect. The need for children to understand the importance of having clear expectations hasn’t always been easy. However we are all so proud to know each of our children through our restorative work and consistent approach are an absolute credit to themselves and the school’
We will continue our work on ensuring that our school is a safe environment and one where every pupil’s voice matters. We nurture and care for all of our children, but more importantly than that we teach our children how to take care of each other. We are incredibly proud to let you know we are well above the average in comparison to the rest of the schools in North Yorkshire, and we will continue to strive to provide a first class education for all of our children.
