  • will manage challenging situations robustly and with empathy and kindness
  • will provide a safe and supportive learning environment for pupils and staff
  • will continually strive to develop effective and strong partnerships between home and school and the Church.

  • enthusiastic and inquisitive pupils who enjoy learning and display good behaviour
  • a hardworking, knowledgeable and dedicated staff team
  • parents who support the school and have a key role in developing and maintaining our school community through the Home School Association (for Bramford) and Friends of Somersham School activities
