We are very pleased with a letter we received from Tim Coulson, the regional schools' commissioner for the East of England and North East London. He wrote to us after we had a visit from the DfE, checking that we were still a "Good" school and that we had high standards. Some of the comments included:
"The teaching was purposeful and the pupils' attitudes to learning were strong. Books were well presented and showed good progress over time...Attendance in both schools is at or above national figures. Professional development has led to strong expertise in key areas."
"The pupils that were interviewed were very enthusiastic about the school and grateful for the high quality support they received."
"One girl was full of praise for the support the school had given to her disabled younger sibling. All had an unusually positive view of the schools. They appreciated taking part in mixed activities and really enjoyed their Friday afternoon joint sessions. Harmer admitted that a response to one of his questions had been unique and surprising. When asked what was best about the school, the first answer he received was "the homework". This turned out to be a reference to the creative activities the pupils are encouraged to undertake at home to extend their learning. His question about the ways the schools could be improved was the only one to stump them."
"These are two good schools that have developed through partnership and strong, committed leadership...the interest of working across both schools has made them an interesting place in which to work and develop."
The children enjoyed a lovely Candlemas Service in Tilney All Saints Church last week. Mr Wilkinson, from Anthony Curton School, led the service which gave the children a chance to reflect on sharing and giving. The children processed around the church with their candles in a traditional style. Many thanks to all of the parents who came to support our children.
We were happy to have a very friendly policeman visit both of our schools recently, after the children had completed their homework on the Emergency Services.

We recently took part in the Marshland Cluster spelling challenge. We had a team of four, who were Cory Chilvers, George Shackcloth, Elsie-may Whitby and Ebonie Desborough. They did very well and came second! Well done for working brilliantly as a team!
Thank you to BJ Puppets who continue to entertain us with their assemblies which always have a very important meaning in them! We also love all of the new puppets!!

Well done to the four children who entered in the Marshland Cluster General Knowledge Quiz! They did really well and tried very hard - we're very proud of them!
During the Easter service at Tilney All Saints Church the children from our sister school, Anthony Curton, pesented us with a prayer chest full of prayers that they had written for the Bishop's Lentern Challenge. Each week we are going to choose one of these prayers to have as prayer of the week and will read it in assembly each day.
Thank you to GenR8 who came to do an assembly for us - we found it very entertaining!
