Rosie has been headteacher of her school for eighteen years. It is an example of her commitment to her post that she did not take a pay-rise for a decade in order to keep her small school – the smallest in her county in fact – out of the red. She has expanded the school’s facilities and its vision: it even has ties as far as Uganda.

“This is a woman who inspires people,” says one parent. “They want to follow her. She has leadership in all areas.” “She has a clear vision for the school and ensures that it is a vision shared by all,” added another parent. “What is more, she makes sure that that vision is implemented. It’s not all talk.” One example of this may be her money-raising efforts. As a small school hers is especially dependent on the support of the local community. To avoid risking it becoming jaded, fund-raising is worked into a rota with charity work. “That’s the kind of long-term, smart planning she’s always capable of,” adds a colleague. “Her actions are unselfish and aimed at making me the best teacher that I can be, which is appreciated,” adds another. “Under her guidance, I feel that I can learn the responsibilities of a headteacher, something until now I would have rejected fervently!”

With this in view we aim

To give every child a good general start to their education.

To provide every possible opportunity for each child to reach his/her full potential in every area.

To encourage every child to grow in wholeness courage, truth and love and to be willing to forgive and be forgiven.

To produce an interesting and stimulating environment and so give pupils a firm foundation to build their lives, preparing them to take place as useful and active members of society.


The National Curriculum sets out the most important knowledge and skills that every child has a right to learn. It is a framework given to teachers by government. So that all school children are taught in a way that is balanced and manageable, but hard enough to challenge them. It gives standards that measure how well children are doing in each subject – so teachers can plan to help them do better.

There are three stages for the different age groups known as key stages that effect this school.

            Foundation Stage     Reception                     4 to 5

            Key Stage 1             Years 1 to 2                   5 to 7

            Key Stage 2             Years 3 to 6                   7 to 11

The foundation stage follows the early years goals. Key Stage 1 and 2 follow the National Curriculum as below
