I started the day early at St Augustine's Catholic Primary School...

After talking to Michael Teggart, the headteacher, I was shown around the school by Melissa, Darryl and Bailey, three year 6 students. They were brilliant ambassadors and adverts for this great little school. The DCSF published the Key Stage 2 performance tables yesterday and the school has just received it's contextual value-added ratings and everything is green and the progress children are making is clear for everyone to see if you are prepared to look.
Walking around the school was wonderful; everywhere was calm, focused and purposeful, the learning environment was great and the children were bright, polite and terrific. This is a great school where Michael and his talented team are releasing a very special magic with some wonderful young people.
