Well guys, together, we did it! We have been told this week that the school is officially out of Special Measures! And in record time too.
I want to say a huge thank you to all the authors, illustrators, publishers and booky friends who supported the school by sending books, encouragement and messages of support. Particular thanks to Caryl Hart, Clara Vulliamy, Louie Stowell, Ellie Irving, Joanna Nadin, Anne Booth, Paula Harrison, Leigh Hodgkinson and GiveABook.org for their generosity and kind words.
Together we stood up for education, for the importance of reading, and – most importantly- for the children. And we showed Gove that he can’t win against integrity and passion and honesty and a group of people who believe in the power of books. Bravo to us!!
