I spent the remainder of the morning at a school I have visited many times over the last seven years. I went to Quarry Mount Primary School where Jan Warton is Interim Headteacher until Easter...

Jan has done a really good job building on the work we have been doing with the school. I was really impressed at the calm and very purposeful atmosphere around the school, Jan's analysis of the key issues facing the school, by the real progress the school is making and most importantly by the wonderful children... who were passionate engaged in a maths 'mission impossible' and a science 'who wants to be a millionaire' ...they also have a particularly impressive Year 6 whose work on 'Othello' was fantastic!

I was impressed to hear that the recent school survey had revealed that the favourite subjects were art and sport and ICT. The least favourite was RE! You can visit their developing website at where you can see some incredible artwork by Year 4 and Year 6.
