o achieve our aims we know there must be consistently strong, innovative teaching in school that is responsive to children’s needs and interests. This means we must have an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum that makes learning fun, engaging and purposeful. Our curriculum must also encourage practical experiences, it must be immersive and responsive to current events.

We also strive to develop a culture in school where children and staff are happy and enthusiastic about learning in the widest sense of the word. This culture grows when children and staff have relationships that are warm and built on mutual respect.
