Welcome back and a Happy New Year to you all.
I wanted to share with you some excellent news to start off our New Year.
The Government have launched a new web site, that some of you may be already aware of, which enables parents and interested parties to compare schools and the progress that the children make.
Each school is compared to any within a 75 mile radius, that had similar KS1 results, and then tracks the progress of these pupils through KS2. I am delighted to say that there is no school within this criteria that outperforms Yardley.
Just before Christmas data was also released which placed Yardley as the 8th highest attaining for progress in Northamptonshire out of 325 schools.
These results could not be attained without the sheer hard work of the staff and the support of you parents- so thank you to all!
