Message from Mr Strong

Dear Parents,

I want to extend my heartfelt appreciation for your unwavering support and your children’s unwavering commitment to their education.

I am absolutely thrilled to share some outstanding news about our academic results last year. Our school achieved remarkable results in our Phonics Screening Test, with children reaching a “Good Level of Development” (GLD) in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) last year. These achievements significantly exceeded both Kent and National averages.

For those who may be curious, GLD stands for “Good Level of Development.” Children are considered to have attained a Good Level of Development at the end of the EYFS when they meet the expected level for the Early Learning Goals (ELGs) in the prime areas of learning and the specific areas of mathematics and literacy.

It’s important to note that the Phonics Screening Test takes place in Year 1.

Looking forward, we are already preparing for Open Mornings for next year’s cohort. We encourage you to share this valuable information with friends and family who may be interested in becoming part of our vibrant school community. It’s a fantastic opportunity for them to experience first hand what makes our school so extraordinary. We have a waiting list for our Year 2 cohort, but have some spaces in our Year 1 and EYFS classes.

Once again, I want to express my gratitude for your continued support. Wishing you and your families a delightful week ahead.

Warm regards,
Mr. Strong
