        It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website. I am delighted to share the news with you, that at our most recent Ofsted inspection, our school was judged to be ‘Outstanding’ in all areas.

        Our children are at the very heart of everything we do and their individual successes, personal well-being and achievements are our top priority! We pride ourselves on our caring, supportive, friendly and happy school environment. Our successful ethos is based on mutual respect for each other, excellent behaviour, positive attitudes to learning and a school where everyone is valued.

        We are proud of the innovative, creative curriculum we have developed with our children. Our curriculum is exciting and motivating them all to succeed through challenging tasks and activities that encourage them to take risks. Our strong vision of ‘bringing learning to life’ is now embedded in all that we do. We have developed our curriculum taking into account the opinions of our children about what and how they want to learn. We believe that involving children in this way and seeking and responding to their views, motivates them to achieve highly in all areas of their learning. Our academic and broader achievements for all of our children are testament to the success of our approach to learning. Please take time to look through our blogs to enjoy a sample of the learning experiences the children regularly enjoy!

        We are an open and welcoming school and value highly the strong partnership we have with our parent community. If you would like to visit our school, please contact us to arrange a meeting with me. I will meet with all new parents and children personally and I will be proud to take you on a tour of our school.
        Please stay a while to explore and enjoy our website.

        An amazing school – its Creative Curriculum and outstanding teachers have inspired both of my children to thoroughly love learning and thrive. Very forwarding thinking, which is so refreshing to see.
