Our Vision

  • We aim to maintain and promote a positive and optimistic school community in which everyone feels safe, welcome and respected.
  • We provide a genuinely broad curriculum through which literacy and numeracy skills, IT, bilingualism, the arts, physical wellbeing and respect for the environment are valued and developed.
  • We believe that we must nurture curiosity, confidence, initiative and resilience in pupils in order to provide opportunities for them to lead rewarding and fulfilling lives.
