I am delighted to inform you that 100% of our year one children achieved above the expected standard in the national phonics screening. (82% national pass rate for 2018). This result is a reflection of the improvements that have been made to the teaching of reading across the school over the last two years. Developing reading areas, whole staff training, purchase of new books for each reading stage from YR – Y6, English lessons based on whole texts, promoting reading for pleasure through class and whole school initiatives and work with you as parents, have all supported your child’s learning. Well done to all the KS1 teaching team and thank you for your commitment to reading with your child at home. As a school, we are currently working towards the Liverpool Reading Quality Mark – look out for news of this in the Autumn term.
What an amazing sports’ day yesterday. Many congratulations to the St Andrew’s team on an excellent victory. Well done to all the children who competed, enjoyed themselves and encouraged their friends showing great teamwork!
Special thanks to those who stayed behind to help clear up after the event. We very much appreciate all your help.
We also had a great evening at the Town Sports. New school, new beginnings – our children looked amazing in their new school’s sports’ kit – purple to match the academy. The girls’ came 3rd overall in the small schools category and Ollie, Kalebh, Evie, Rosie and Annabelle all won individual medals in their events.
The school is super proud of all our children that took part and everyone did so well overall. Thank you to all the parents and family members who attended the sports events yesterday.
