Being a relatively small school of approximately 210 children, we pride ourselves on being able to treat each child as an individual. The school has a very caring ethos where every child matters.

We have exciting grounds which encompasses outdoor learning. We have a pond and outdoor classroom as well as many structures designed to encourage creative play. Please see our webpage on the grounds for more pictures and information.

A highly dedicated team of staff ensure that all children receive a challenging, fun filled and rewarding curriculum.

Children are encouraged to develop as caring and considerate citizens of the future. They are given opportunities to contribute to the decision making process of the school through getting involved in class and school councils.

Children regularly participate in fundraising events in order to raise money for charity and are given responsibilities such as leading acts of collective worship or helping to run the school library.

We provide a fun and flexible curriculum. Themed weeks are organised termly which provide opportunities for staff and children to work together across the school on a range of creative activities.

In the past themes have included 'Music Around the World' which included every child taking part in an African drumming workshop and 'Victory in Europe' which finished in the whole school getting together to hold an outside street party.
As part of our outdoor curriculum, we have Forest Skills, encouraging children to experience the great outdoors. The curriculum is further enriched through an extensive range of after school activities and school visits.

The school is extensively networked and boasts its own computer suite, enabling regular access by pupils.

All classrooms are equipped with interactive white-boards classroom laptops, chromebooks and ipads allowing computing to be delivered in all classes.

Parents are warmly invited to participate in school life. Parents regularly help hear children read and support in the classroom with art and design technology activities. They are invited to school productions and weekly acts of collective worship which are led by the children.
