Our vision for the school

We believe that learning should be fun, purposeful and challenging. Through our creative and exciting curriculum we aim to equip each child with the skills they need for lifelong learning.

We aim to develop confident, independent learners who are proud of their achievements and are well prepared for life in modern Britain and the wider world. Through positive attitudes and partnerships we endeavour to develop the whole child, meeting individual needs in a safe and secure environment where differences are celebrated and respected.

We believe that all members of our school community should work together to maintain a safe and stimulating environment that encompasses both inside and outside learning.

We aim to promote sustainability and an awareness of worldwide issues through our curriculum and the links made with our local and global communities.

We believe our staff should enjoy their work and be passionate about what they do, developing good teamwork and positive partnerships for effective teaching, high standards and successful learning.
