We are a partnership of school, church, home and community. We aim to provide children with opportunities to learn and achieve within a caring, safe environment, where time is taken to value each child and encourage, promote and celebrate all achievements, within the Christian ethos of our school.
Parents and Teachers work in partnership to support Reception children to adjust to school life. At first you will want to come into class and help your child settle in to their new environment. After the first two weeks or so, we would ask that you let the children be more independent and come into class themselves.
AIMS OF THE SCHOOL

THE BIG WILD READ
This summer, Cheshire Libraries will once again be holding the National Summer Reading Challenge; this year entitled “The Big Wild Read”. Children signing up to take part in The Big Wild Read will be given, free of a charge, a bright and colourful folder to record their summer reading. They’ll also receive sets of scratch and sniff stickers to decorate the folder (smells include flowers, strawberries plus smelly compost!), and there are other incentives too, bookmarks and even a free pack of wild flower seeds to attract wild life into gardens and neighbourhoods. Go along to your local library to find out more.
CBS catering provides our school meals and are committed to providing a well balanced nutritious meal that meets Government guidelines as well as being appetising to eat. Also very important is value for money. That is why CBS catering have to strike the balance between increasing the selling price and not pricing a school meal out of the market place. To that end, CBS catering will be increasing the standard selling price of a school meal from September 2007 to £1.80.
If your child regularly has a school dinner it is helpful if payment is made in advance. Weekly payments can be handed into the school office in a clearly marked envelope, £1.80 each day or £9 per week.

Our school maintains close links with this beautiful church which is only a few minutes walk. Pupils regularly use the building to perform in and take part in many local events. The Revd Paul Dawson visits our school and entertains and educates us during his weekly assembly each Wednesday. This is always an exciting and interesting assembly which complements our daily assemblies.
