We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum, where all pupils can achieve their best. We recognise our place in the community. We have close links with the Church including attending church every month.
Our Christian values ; Believe- Discover -Aspire- encompass everything that we do.
What do inspectors say?
' This is a nurturing, inclusive school where mutual respect and love permeate all aspects of daily life... There is a broad and balanced curriculum which is engaging and exciting. .. Academic attainment and progress are at least in line, and often above, the nationally expected standards.' SIAMS 2019
"This is a happy school where pupils learn, play and mix well. Pupils take an active role in the school, for example through the school council and eco-council, and their views are valued by staff. Pupils are respected and trusted. Pupils are proud of the school and reflect the school’s values through their general behaviour and conduct throughout the day" (Ofsted Inspection, March 2017)
