Data analysis on educational outcomes by the SSAT has shown that the school has enabled children to make progress in reading, writing and maths which is significantly higher than the national average at Key Stage 2.

It also showed that the school’s progress rated among the top 10 per cent nationally and the school also features among the top ten per cent of schools for attainment in the country.

Simon Scott, head teacher of All Saints’ said:“I am so proud to be the Head Teacher of such a great school. Thanks to everyone for their continued hard work.

Sue Williamson, chief executive of SSAT said: “It’s my great pleasure to commend All Saints’ on its excellent 2015 performance, and to have the opportunity to highlight and share their great work at the SSAT Educational Outcomes celebration event. “I have the privilege of visiting a lot of schools and I am always impressed by the creativity of teachers in engaging and inspiring their students.

“I hope that SSAT’s Educational Outcomes award will highlight the professionalism, commitment and hard work of the leaders, teachers and students at the school.

“Recognising and sharing successes like this is at the heart of SSAT’s mission, so I’m delighted to congratulate the school on its achievement.”

At the heart of the SSAT’s ethos is the belief that teachers make students’ lives.

It is the hub of the largest and long-standing network of school leaders and forward-looking teachers in the country.

Its network helps teachers and leaders to collaborate with other schools to encourage peer learning, benchmarking improvement and celebrating achievements.
