|An Introduction to the School|

The School was built in 1861 and has had recent additions, the most recent being a modern classroom which is now a teaching base for Foundation children. There are four well-equipped classroom areas, a multi purpose hall, a non-fiction library, office and store rooms. There are ample grounds with a large playground area, climbing apparatus, wildlife areas and pond. To enrich our curriculum we have a greenhouse and some gardens.
|Recent years have seen a significant increase in the school roll. Much work has gone into improving the school grounds which now include a separate play/outdoor tuition area for our youngest pupils. |
|The school is made up of four classes. Class 1 Foundation , Class 2 a mix of Year 1 and 2, Class 3 a mix of year 3 and 4 and class 4, a mix of years 5 & 6. |
The class teachers are responsible for delivering the curriculum each day to the children in their class groups. Special Needs children work within the class framework and are sometimes withdrawn for additional support. Much thought is given to whole school planning to satisfy the demands of the revised National Curriculum.
Our school is a community, which cares about its children, and we are concerned that every child should be encouraged to give of its best. This means that we want our childrne to succeed both in their work and in their relationships and to achieve the highest standards, which can only be maintained with your support as parents. We look forward to meeting you and your child and hope that this will be the start of the close co-operation between home and school which is essential if your child is to get the very best from school life.
