We believe that every member of our school community has a right to achieve their potential in an atmosphere which balances support with challenge. We provide a climate for learning which encourages creativity, is enjoyable, safe, exciting, and well-structured. We are passionate about improving the health and life choices for all our children and our school ethos promotes health, well–being, self-esteem and resilience and these are the foundations for our children to be successful in all they do. Our goal - underpinned by our four foundation stones of Nurture, Inspire, Learn, Succeed - is to develop life-long learning characteristics in children that encourage self leadership skills, helping each child to be the very best they can be.
