Headteacher's Welcome

Children learn because they love it and they are happy just to be at school. We promote Christian values of respect for one another, friendship, curiosity, tolerance of difference and self esteem. The heart of our vision is that individuality is something to celebrate.

Every moment matters because we make it so. From a new laid egg to a poem created in the woods, measuring the height of a sunflower or cheering someone on to score their first ever goal.

The curriculum is constantly evolving as education never stands still - neither do we.

Please contact school if you require information in braille or large print.
