Although it only seems like yesterday that we returned after the Christmas break, staff and students have been working exceptionally hard over the past six weeks to ensure our progress continues at St Julian’s.

Thank you again for your patience last week. We are delighted that our gas supply has returned, along with our heating and hot water.

Following their visit just before Christmas, Estyn have now confirmed that our improvement plan – also known as the Post Inspection Plan (PIAP) – is suitable and will serve to help our progress. The PIAP is now available for all to see on the school website (via About Us, School Improvement). They have recently informed us that they are going to conduct a monitoring visit between the 5th and 7th March. I will of course update you with their report.

Improvements have taken place across the school – the standards in books are higher than they were previously and student voice recognises an increase in challenge in the classroom. Please take a moment to sit down with your son/daughter and ask them to talk you through their work….
