Head Teacher’s Philosophy

We nurture the talents of our pupils in a supportive and purposeful environment; the staff encourage discovery and creative problem solving so that as our pupils mature they adapt to changing situations and are able to apply their knowledge independently. We are a Christian school and welcome children from other faiths.

Outstanding Characteristics

Experienced staff are able to evaluate the abilities of each pupil and offer support and guidance when planning the next steps of development. In the Early Years, children may explore and investigate at their own pace. Older children’s work in science, history and geography provides rich stimuli for learning in a beautiful environment.
