The school was founded in 1893 as a Church of England school. Since that time it has been granted Aided Status under the 1944 Education Act, which enables it to remain faithful to its original Church of England Foundation with the majority of the Governors representing the Church of England, referred to in the prospectus as Foundation Governors.


As a school community our aims are:

  • To create a welcoming, thriving and happy school where everyone is valued and able to realise their potential.
  • To promote religious understanding and a growing appreciation of the Christian faith in order to help the children develop personal and moral values, showing respect and tolerance for other people and their way of life.
  • To help the children acquire knowledge, experience and skills relevant to their life and learning, after they have left us.


The first section of the 1993 Education Act states that every pupil in maintained schools is entitled to a curriculum which is balanced and broadly based and which, it says:

  • Promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society; and
  • Prepares such pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.
This curriculum, around which our own school curriculum is developed, is made up of two parts:
  • Religious Education
  • The National Curriculum


Through home visits and visiting playgroups and nurseries, we establish contact with each child and her/his parents before entry to school and we very much appreciate parents bringing their child to school on preliminary visits before s/he enters. This enables both parent and child to become accustomed to their new surroundings and teacher. To this end we arrange three visits towards the end of the term before the child starts school and also a new parents' evening.

Home School Agreements are sent home annually for all children and their parents to sign.
