Our school was built in 1965 and is blessed with spacious classrooms and areas that can be used for group work. We are an inclusive school and want to ensure that everyone has a voice including the children who are so often not heard. We are part of the Healthy School's Project and the children are encouraged to eat a healthy lunch so we ask parents not to provide crisps and sweets. We have also made the school a peanut free zone to cater for those children who have a severe allergic reaction to them. Children are made aware of the reasons for these decisions and feel quite comfortable with them. We are keen to ensure that each child reaches their potential academically but we have not lost sight of the value of a broad curriculum so put equal importance on The Arts, Humanities, Science and Technology. Above all we have the child at the heart of our Community and plan carefully with them in mind.
We have a two term entry. This means that children come into school either in September or January.
Children who have their fifth birthday between September and the end of December start full time in September.
Children who have their fifth birthday between January and the end of March start full time in January.
Children who have their fifth birthday between April and the end of August also start school in January but on a part time [mornings only] basis.
They begin full time education after the Easter holiday.
This sounds complicated but isn't really. Please ring us at school if you have any queries.
