Due to the implementation of a new National Curriculum (Septmeber 2014), the way we will assess pupils is changing.

We have sent out leaflets to explain how these changes will impact on your child.

Please download and read the leaflet below.

If there is anything you do not understand or wish to discuss further please speak to a class teacher or Mrs Ralph.
