Impact of Pupil Premium 2016 / 2017

Ofsted (March 2017) noted:

“The Early Years provide a wealth of opportunities for children to explore, engage in and enjoy. Areas of learning indoors and outdoors are well organised and inviting. They give opportunities for children to lead their own investigations through practical first hand experiences”.
