We believe that educaton is a partnership between teacher, parent and child. The philosophy of the governors, the head and staff is that school should be a happy, caring, well disciplined community which provides for all abilities and makes every effort to extend each child to his or her fullest potential.


The school aims to provide a learning environment where children can grow in confidence and self esteem; where they develop self worth and the need to care for their own and others feelings and belongings; and where they become part of the whole school and wider community. We aim to encourage our children to acquire increasing independence in self discipline, self organisation and in learning.
