On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I'd like to welcome you to Seven Stars Primary School website.
We are a fairly small school community with approximately 170 pupils from age three to eleven. We pride ourselves in knowing our children and their families well and always strive to establish and develop strong working relationships, which benefit the children.
As a school we are dedicated to the children and we strive to ensure that Seven Stars is a school where children come first. We make learning fun and we focus on every child making progress to reach their full potential. Our KS1 results this year are the best in eight years in some cases and our KS2 results show an improvement on last year with several children making rapid progress. Our Average Point Score progress in Reading and Writing is above national expectations.
We hope that during your visit to our website you will find all that you are looking for!
I look forward to meeting you.

PROGRESS AND ATTAINMENT 2014|
Our most recent end of Key Stage 1 results are the best in eight years in most subjects and best in five years in others! Results at Level 2b in Reading, Writing and Mathematics are above the 2013 national average results! Our end of year Reception scores are above the 2013 national average for 'at least expected' in Communication and Language, Physical Development, Mathematics, Writing and Self-confidence (as well as in other areas)! Our average point score in Reading is above the national average for all year groups and at Year 1 we have recently seen an increase in the Phonics screening score by an additional 20% to 60% which is only 9% away from the 2013 national average. As you can imagine we are very pleased with these results and we are moving onwards and upwards to ensure we build on this success in all areas. Well done everyone!
We are really pleased with our Y6 SATs results this year which (before verification) are:-
Reading 80% Level 4s (6% higher than last year)
Writing 73% Level 4s (in line with last year’s results)
Maths 73% Level 4s (25% higher than last year)
Our progress rates are really good and our children have worked hard to achieve these scores. Well done to all of you.
Our goals for next year are to see all subjects improve even more in their Level 4s, to see an increase in Level 5 results for the more able pupils, a focus on spelling and on children being able to recall their number bonds and times tables by the end of Year 4 (among other things).
Our SEAL theme for this half term is 'New Beginnings'
