We pride ourselves on our warm and friendly atmosphere and hope that new parents and children will quickly feel part of our school family.

Our school is a community school and we work closely together with the village of Wortham and all of our parents and carers, to ensure that children in our school receive the best outcomes possible in their learning and personal development.

We have high expectations and it is important to us that the children are happy, confident, resilient and enjoy their learning; making the most of all the opportunities we have to offer. We ensure that all learning is purposeful and linked to children`s own experiences so they are engaged, challenged and become highly effective problem solvers and communicators.

Our curriculum is creative, inclusive and exciting. It provides children with a broad range of learning experiences which seek to nurture talents and acquire new skills in a hands-on and engaging way. It is our aim for all children to have a deeper understanding of the world around them and to become responsible and caring citizens of the future.
