Our Vision and Values

Our core values of care, honesty, determination, respect, responsibility and appreciation permeate every aspect of school life and enable our children to feel happy and confident within a safe and supportive community. Along with these, the British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs, are embedded within our school.

We all work together, nurturing our children to be resilient and offering the very best education. By building a challenging and engaging curriculum, underpinned by a strong, positive learning culture, we ensure that every child becomes a lifelong learner, independently striving to succeed.

Curriculum and Culture

Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum. We work to make curriculum links that are meaningful to our children and to deliver lessons which inspire and motivate. Read more about our curriculum.
