Welcome to our School!
The original schoolhouse dates back to around 1800 and is Grade 2 listed.
The extension building is fairly new - having been completed in September 2005!
For the first time in the school's long history we have a purpose built assembly hall.
Our new building also houses two new classrooms for Key Stage 2, with toilet and cloakroom facilities, school kitchen, storage and head teacher's office completing the picture.
Not to be outdone, our original building has undergone a radical facelift too!
This part of the school is home to Foundation and Key Stage 1, and comprises
two further classrooms each with their own toilets and cloakrooms. The school's computer suite, library and school office are also located here.

Our school will be warm and welcoming. We will have an 'open-door' policy which will seek to ensure that parents and the local community feel that their opinions are valued and are able to communicate freely with the school's staff. At the same time, the school will always try to keep parents informed about their children and the school. The school will respect the opinions of all its stakeholders but will ultimately make decisions which it believes are in the best interests of the children. We will always try to work with our parents and local community as we recognise that this is 'our' school and we should all feel an attachment and a pride in the school's successes. We also value the crucial role that parents play in their children's development and recognise that education is most effective when we work in unison, as this is most likely to help our children.
We will value all members of our school for who and what they are and we will value the gifts of all our children. We will work to develop all aspects of our pupils so that they develop into well-rounded individuals who have high self-esteem and feel secure about themselves. This will involve promoting every child's spiritual, physical, moral, social, cultural and academic development. This will give our pupils the best possible start in their school lives and the best chance of reaching their potential.
In achieving this we will need to ensure that we value and respect all our pupils and that we have high but realistic expectations for everyone. We will also do our best to cater for the needs of every individual and we will create a climate where children are not afraid to make mistakes and in which success is celebrated. We will encourage a tolerance and understanding of people's differences and have a firm but fair approach to discipline.
Staff will be role models in every respect. They will be active learners themselves and will conduct themselves professionally at all times. They will be supported in their professional and personal development and we will try to create a climate in which we are open to change and in which we see change as a possible opportunity to improve the school.
Our children will be encouraged to develop enquiring minds and we will try to draw out their abilities to think logically, elicit information by questioning and to consider conflicting points of view. They will be taught a set of consistent moral values as we work towards preparing our children to become reliable employers and employees of the future and good citizens in their adult lives.
