Our school vision 

  • Every child should feel valued, safe and happy in our school (Belong)

We aim to achieve this by working as a team-staff, parents/carers, governors and the local community to:

  • Create a safe and nurturing environment where emotional well-being is supported
  • Promote high standards of behaviour and an environment where everyone is valued as individuals
  • Have a broad and balanced curriculum that is fun, hands on, creative and which is personalised to the children's needs
  • Have high quality teaching which inspires, motivates and engages all children and which develops a lifelong love of learning
  • Celebrate effort and produces confident pupils who are prepared to take risks and aim high
  • Focus on developing, caring individuals who have mutual respect for others and who will grow up to be caring and responsible citizens

Our Guiding values and principles which underpin our curriculum 

We aim to 'move forward' together with children and families by focussing on our four curriculum drivers. These are:

-Global citizenship


-Thematic learning (making links between subjects and prior learning)
