Thank you for attending the Downing Street reception celebrating excellence in state education. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your contribution to education in this country.
Progress has been the result of hard work and commitment on the part of many people, especially you and your staff. Together with senior leaders, the chief executive of the academy trust and the governing body, you have created a very positive ethos. ‘Your determination and careful planning is ensuring that provision for students is continuing to improve.
The headteacher leads the academy with great skill and determination. Her high aspirations for the academy are enthusiastically shared by a multi-skilled senior team of leaders and a highly motivated staff. They have driven increasingly effective improvement in the attainment and achievement of all pupils in reading, writing and especially mathematics.
My warmest congratulations to you, your staff and your pupils for the very high standard of achievement in the 2015 phonics screening check…I was so delighted with your results…With 100% of pupils at Brookvale Primary School reaching or exceeding the pass mark in the check, your school is in the top 2% of all primary schools in the country.
England boasts one of the very best educational institutions in the world….Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial and UCL are world class….and comprehensives like…Arthur Terry in Birmingham.
