You may be looking to join us in some capacity - as a parent, a pupil or staff member - and would like to find more about us.
The main aim of the school is to create a love of learning in every child who comes here and to provide each individual with the skills and knowledge to take them forward. High expectations of standards in mathematics and literacy are maintained which provide a strong learning foundation. We support our children in becoming curious, persistent and reflective learners who are not afraid to take risks in meeting their learning challenges. We endeavour to offer an exciting, creative and meaningful curriculum which emphasises learning connections for adult and child alike, and celebrates innovation.
We emphasise the moral values of sharing and caring for each other, and encourage the development of strengths such as teamwork, community awareness, courtesy and self respect. We appreciate that parents play a crucial part in this learning process and their interest and support is both valued and relied upon.
The Governing body is a team of volunteers that have the important job of looking at the overall direction of the school. It is made up of representatives from the Local Education Authority, the local Church, members of staff and elected parents.
We meet as a Governing Body about twice each term, and each governor will also be a member of a sub-committee looking at various aspects of the school. In addition, some governors take a particular role supporting particular areas in the school, such as Special Needs or Numeracy. Minutes of the Governing body are available to read at the school.
Whilst recognising that children start school at different stages of their development, with different interests and abilities, we are committed to helping the school ensure that the children achieve the best education possible.
In addition, we aim to support the staff in providing the very best opportunities for each child to develop personally, socially and intellectually into a caring and responsible citizen. In this preparation for future life, we are keen to provide a rich and relevant education with equal opportunities for all children regardless of social background, physical abilities, gender, race, creed or religion.
We believe that to be successful in achieving this we must all - parents, school staff and governors - work together in partnership for the benefit of each child.
