In addition to our ten classrooms and Preschool, the school has a central library, a hall with a stage and computer suite. There are playgrounds, playing fields and extensive school grounds, which include an environmental area.
We aim to provide a secure and settled environment, building on our strengths and successes, whilst still working towards continuous improvement by implementing new initiatives and developments that will enhance children’s learning. We provide a broad and creative curriculum that is tailored to meet the needs of each individual child, placing an emphasis on the teaching of the basic skills of English and Maths to ensure that each child does their best and fulfils their potential in all areas. We celebrate success at every opportunity.
We recognise the valuable role that parents have to play and encourage parents to take advantage of the many opportunities to share in their child’s education, recognising that children achieve well when a strong partnership between home and school is in place.
We are proud of all that our school has to offer and visitors are always welcome!
