Our Ethos Statement is:

Shine from the inside out.

Our Vision is:

Learning and Development for all, through challenge, nurture and enjoyment.

We aim to provide:

A happy purposeful Christian environment, in which each child feels secure and develops self-confidence, enabling them to flourish and reach their full potential.
Children’s learning journeys are enhanced by working together with the wider community.
Our three school rules are understood and quoted by all pupils, even the four year olds. Standards in behaviour are excellent as they all recognise the importance of:
“Be kind. Be careful. Work hard.”

In our school we offer:

  • A very strong partnership between families and schools.
  • Excellent social and emotional support for all children and their parents/carers.
  • High quality levels of support for the most and least able children when appropriate.
  • A stimulating environment and curriculum which motivates and engages all children.
  • High expectations of all children in all subjects to achieve their personal best.

In September 2009 we moved into our brand new school building. We now have excellent facilities, with particular improvements in sports, the outdoor environment and technology.
