I started the day early at Clapgate Primary School...

I started the day having breakfast with the children attending the Breakfast Club before talking to Lesley Simpson, headteacher, about the progress the school has made as well as the opportunities and challenges ahead. It was great to talk to Lesley about the learning journey the school has been on and we then walked around the school to meet Lesley's colleagues and some of her wonderful children before I finally joined the 'Wake Up and Shake Up' session with the youngest children in the hall.

It is deeply encouraging to see the transformation that has taken place at Clapgate Primary School over the last few years. Colleagues have very obviously worked hard to create a calm, purposeful and attractive learning place for the children and there is a real energy, enthusiasm and passion wherever you look which is beginning to achieve results.
