Our school is a unique, happy and special place. Within the heart of the community, it is where children feel safe, loved and supported as they grow and develop into confident and successful individuals. Fully inclusive, we promote acceptance and understanding of each individual’s strengths and needs. We believe in the importance of nurturing each child, encouraging them to take ownership and responsibility for themselves and each other. Through providing a challenging and experience rich education, we ensure our children thrive to reach ‘beyond expectation’.
Our children are incredible. Our vision for them is to excel in all areas, from personal skills, to academic achievements. This is our goal for all of them. We are able to meet this vision by providing them with a safe, enticing, friendly environment where they can access hands-on experiences. They are given memorable learning experiences that have relevance to their wider life and interests and are encouraged to take pride in all they do, who they are and our community. We support children to become numerate, with an increasing reasoning about numbers and mathematical concepts. We support them in becoming fluent readers that can understand texts. We support them in becoming fluent, creative and capable writers.

Within our school we promote six key values. These underpin all we do and form a basis of our curriculum. These six values are:
These values are taught to the children from the moment they walk through the school gates through a variety of strategies including: using a calm and consistent tone, listening to children, encouraging them, using restorative practice to support the children in resolving conflict, ensuring the highest level of respect is displayed by all individuals to each other, taking time to understand our children and what they need, making links with the community, involving parents, discussing values in assembly and circle times, promoting a climate of discussing our thoughts and feelings, promoting trial and error, not always by providing the answers, giving them responsibility, rewarding those children showing the values, supporting the children in becoming reflective, being explicit when rewarding behaviours.
