Welcome to our School

Ofsted Outstanding School 2014-15I am delighted to welcome you to our school and website and want to ensure that you are as fully informed as possible about your children's school and the provision it offers.

As a Primary, Nursery, and Extended School, we are open to children from the ages of 2 through to 11. All children are encouraged and supported to ‘be the best they can be’ and families are highly valued as partners in their children’s education. We are passionate about ensuring that every child matters. Our curriculum is innovative and exciting. We are delighted with what our pupils achieve and we are proud of all the different learning opportunities our children take part in to help them to become ‘the best they can be’, academically, personally, morally and socially. We strive to treat children with care, compassion, dignity and respect so that they in turn become responsible citizens in their communities and the wider world. We care about what they think and through the School Council encourage them to have a voice and share in decision making. The importance of values is a priority for us.

We want to work in partnership with you and offer various opportunities for you to come into school so that you are well informed about your children's progress and well-being. We look forward to working with you and welcoming you to our community.
