We were thrilled to receive a letter this week from Dr Tim Coulson, the Regional Schools Commissioner for East England and North-East London on behalf of the Department of Education. It read:

Dear Ms Hussain,

I was very pleased to see your schools provisional Key Stage 2 results for this summer. Everyone is aware of the higher demands of the tests than in previous years and it was very impressive how well and quickly your staff have adapted and taught to the standards required.

These results come about through back-breaking work.

Congratulations to you and your colleagues for doing so well.
