The BBC has recently published progress achievement statistics for Reading and Writing. A breakdown by local authority can be seen by visiting www.compare-school-performance.service.gov.uk
It is wonderful to see that out of 364 schools across Birmingham, St Martin de Porres is 49th in progress for reading and 25th in progress for writing standards. For you as parents, this means you can be confident that, whatever you child’s starting points and talents, she/he will make progress that contributes to us being one of the top 15% of schools in Birmingham. This is down to the hard work put in by staff and children throughout the school – well done to you all.
We are delighted to announce that our school got rewarded with the Modeshift Stars Bronze distinction.
Modeshift STARS is the national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel.
The scheme encourages schools across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel in order to improve the health and well-being of children and young people.
