||The school grounds, of approximately 5 hectares (12 acres), are a super resource providing hard surface play areas, playing fields and well equipped recreation/play spaces. There are many different habitats including ponds, wetlands, wooded areas and meadowland. |
Our accommodation consists of 2 main teaching blocks; one containing the nursery, infant classrooms and infant library, and the other the junior classrooms, hall, computer room, library, kitchen and administration areas.
|We work to provide opportunities for all pupils to enjoy the five outcomes of Every Child Matters, that is to:
Enjoy & Achieve;
Make a Positive Contribution;
Achieve Economic Well-being.
In addition to fulfilling all our legal responsibilities with respect to the national curriculum, religious education, positive racial education, sex and relationships education, equal opportunities and the health and safety of our pupils, are aims are as follows.
|To keep the needs of children central to our work and decision-making and to provide for all according to individual need so that children develop as fully as possible their spiritual, moral, cultural, intellectual and physical abilities.|
To provide for all our pupils a high quality, broad and balanced education with opportunities to achieve high standards and success across the full primary curriculum.
