A warm and welcoming atmosphere is a key feature of our school. We are committed to providing a high level of care for our children, ensuring that they remain safe and happy and that their personal, social and emotional needs are met.
Our school is at the heart of our community. Our parents are highly involved in school life through our Parents’ Association and as regular visitors and helpers in school. We use our town and locality as a resource in our learning and participate actively in community events. International partnerships with schools in Europe give our children the opportunity to learn about other countries in immediate and real contexts. Children through the school learn Spanish.
Academic progress is ensured through thorough assessments and a curriculum that matches the needs of individuals. We carefully map out the provision for children throughout the ability range and are able to offer 1:1 teaching for eligible children through ‘Every Child a Reader’ and ‘Every Child Counts’ programmes. A ‘growth mindset’ is nurtured in our children helping them to develop self-belief and a positive attitude to challenge. A commitment to outdoor education, including Forest School, supports our drive to provide for the needs of all children.
