We felt we were in a good position with English before we started, but her input has helped us move forward hugely- recognised by what we reckon is quite a prestigious "Excellence in Literacy" quality mark from the Institute of Education.

For the first time in 10 years, the school is well above average for our writing and we have seen a 10% increase at KS2 and a 7% increase at KS1.
