We have an excellent team who work hard to ensure your child has the best start in life. We constantly evaluate what we do so your child gets as many opportunities as possible to achieve academically, socially, emotionally, creatively and physically.

We provide a vibrant learning environment where all children are provided with opportunities to succeed. We are keen to encourage links with parents and believe it a crucial part of school life. We recognise the key role parents have in ensuring their children succeed and the strength of this partnership will enable us to be a strong community. This is achieved through clear and open communication. We always aim to keep parents informed and involved with what is going on in school through newsletters, texts, emails and the website.

Please look around the website for further information, especially under the parents link where you can find the school prospectus. We always welcome visitors and I always willing to make myself available to show parents around if I can.
