We received a letter from Jan Paine, Managing Director and Pat McAteer, Strategic Lead Primary of Herts for Learning today. It congratulates Mr Jukes, staff and children on the ‘truly outstanding’ KS2 progress measures in the school in 2015.’ ‘To reach or exceed the national median levels for progress in all three areas of reading, writing and mathematics is a significant achievement and reflects the good and outstanding teaching the children are enjoying at your school.’
Specific mention is given to the significant role Mr Jukes as Headteacher plays in bringing such an outcome. The letter states: ‘We felt it important to write to you at a time when there are so many external pressures on schools and to thank you for your resilience and determination in ensuring the children in your school receive the very best educational start we can possibly give them’.
