curriculum to raise children’s outcomes and allow them to move onto secondary school fully prepared. We believe strongly in building our children’s aspirations and helping them to become good learners so they can build on their successes each year and achieve their full potential. We use the Astrea Values to help build children’s life skills and prepare them fully for secondary school. Our children behave well and enjoy coming to school. All staff are committed to providing the very best for all children.
