School Aims

We welcome and appreciate the support and involvement of parents and the wider community in the life of our school. Our aims are:

  • To value each child as an individual
  • To provide a learning environment which is purposeful, well-planned and stimulating
  • To offer a variety of experiences and opportunities so that each child achieves their full potential
  • To develop each child’s personal qualities necessary to become a successful life-long learner
  • To create a community of enquiry in which thinking and reflection is developed
  • To create a positive and caring atmosphere in which each child is encouraged to respect and value themselves and others



Through our curriculum, we aim to extend each child’s understanding of themselves and the world they live in. We aim to provide a broad and balanced education that treats each child as an individual and enables him/her to achieve his/her potential and to develop the skills and qualities needed to be a successful learner.
In accordance with Government legislation, children follow the National Curriculum. This comprises of separate programmes for:

Foundation - Ages 3-5

- Personal, Social & Emotional Development
- Communication (Language & Literacy)
- Mathematical Development
- Knowledge & Understanding of the World

Religious Education: The school follows the agreed Dorset syllabus. Parents have the right to withdraw their children from this subject; please inform the school if
you wish to do so.

All bases are fully equipped with ICT resources. The library and study have additional suites of computers. The study, studio and hall have interactive whiteboards.

Through detailed planning we provide a curriculum that offers the means and encouragement for every child to achieve their potential. We expect high standards in both work and behaviour and we want the children to enjoy their learning and tackle everything with enthusiasm and increasing independence.
