School Ethos
We value each child as an individual.

Our Aims
We aim to:
  • Create an atmosphere that is caring and welcoming to all pupils, parents and other members of the community and a sense of excitement and enjoyment in learning.
  • Offer a curriculum, which will encourage academic, aesthetic, physical, social and emotional and spiritual development, ensuring that the children are given the opportunity to acquire basic skills essential for further learning.
  • Encourage pupils to take pride in their work, aim for the highest possible standards and derive satisfaction for their own achievements and achievements of others.
  • Help pupils develop self-control, co-operation, perseverance and a toleration of ideas and values different from their own.
