Curriculum:- We provide a broad and balanced curriculum which is both creative and challenging. This can be personalised for each child to ensure their needs are met.

SMSC: - We strive to create a variety of opportunities, both in school and during educational visits to promote students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

Community Cohesion: - We have strong links between school, home and the local community to strengthen and embed our children's learning.


By offering a high quality education through our formal curriculum we aim to raise standards of attainment, ensuring all children:

Develop their English and Mathematical skills as a firm basis for all other subjects and life-long learning.

Build on their social skills across their peer groups and adults alike to become a valued member of society.

 Develop our children's personal and moral values, ensuring they are respectful of others, leading to their appreciation and toleration of other religions and other ways of life and they treat everyone as an equal irrespective of a person's gender, race, class or disability.

 Ensure all children learn and staff work in a safe and secure environment, in keeping with Health and Safety Regulations.
