Headteacher Susan Milewski said the state-of-the-art building, excellent provision and fabulous teaching and learning have resulted in outstanding achievement, well above national expectations, for its first cohort of children.

She said: “Parents are absolutely delighted and say our school has exceeded their expectations.

“Our classes have no more than 20 children and we have happy, successful and confident learners always eager to live out the school vision statement; Aspire to be the best imagined, Achieve great things and Challenge ourselves even further.”

She said a varied programme of enrichment is provided with at least two after school clubs each evening and wrap around care before and after school (7.30am-6pm). The school website shows the vast number of opportunities the school has offered this year for their children.

Susan added: “We are almost full for next year with just a few places remaining. RFPS looks forward to welcoming their second cohort in September. The school is obviously extremely proud of its success this year and looks forward to many more successful years to come.
