Ethos

We work to create an atmosphere that encourages confidence and self-esteem, where each child is happy, enjoys learning and develops skills for education and life. The curriculum is stimulating, relevant and varied and the working environment enables the development of individual strengths and co-operative skills. We always aim to improve on our previous best.

The school community is caring and challenging, where children grow in confidence. Each child has a significant place in this community, contributing varied abilities and gifts and experiencing its support. The school has a contribution to make to its neighbourhood, and values contacts with people in the area.

Integrated Learning

The school has its own carefully planned curriculum policies, which ensure that the children learn the full range of the National Curriculum in a continuous, structured and progressive manner. The National Curriculum subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Computing, Art, Design and Technology, History and Geography, Music and Physical Education are covered at suitable levels for each age group and individual ability.

These subjects are usually taught through general topics that relate the different subjects under one title. The school also provides teaching programmes on Health issues, which includes Sex Education. In addition lessons on Religious Education form a part of the children’s learning experiences.
