What the school offers its staff

We are fully committed to providing the best possible outcomes for the children in our community, and our hard working and dedicated staff work together to achieve this. We are proud to achieve excellence in teaching and learning and are aspirational with children’s achievements, teaching them that the sky’s the limit in what they can achieve in life.

As well as academic success, we want our children to be happy, safe and enjoy coming to school. We want them to develop into well rounded individuals who can achieve well in the wider world and make a positive difference to it. We teach children about this through our 6 green behaviours which are linked to learning: resilience, independence, curiosity, respect, honesty and responsibility. Pupils are at the heart of everything we do and we offer excellent pastoral care for them.

We offer a broad and balanced curriculum with topics that are carefully planned to engage and excite pupils with their learning. We give pupils the opportunity to help plan some of their topic learning and topics are brought to life by trips, residentials, memorable experiences and visitors. We aim to share learning with parents where possible. Our growing success over recent years has led to very good outcomes in everything that we do.
