And pupils even received a letter from MP Damian Hinds – the minister of state for schools since November 2023 – to congratulate them on their achievement.

Speaking about the news, headteacher Jackie Livermore said: “I am incredibly proud of the staff and children who worked so hard to achieve these results.

“We pride ourselves on giving every child fantastic opportunities in the core subjects as well as offering an engaging wider curriculum in our beautiful woodland school.

“All children learn to play a musical instrument, participate in Forest School activities and explore their community and, underpinning all of this, they have a secure knowledge of reading, writing and maths.”

The school also ranked top nationally in the Department for Education school performance data for overall primary performance in 2023, with 100 per cent of pupils meeting the KS2 expected standard.
