A Warm Welcome from the Headteacher

We are very proud of our school, our children and their successes. We believe that this school is special and the relationships we develop with our children and their families enables us to create a friendly, caring and supportive atmosphere. We strive relentlessly for high standards of achievement, both academically and personally.


As a Community School, we are particularly conscious that our pupils grow as part of a community and a society where we can all live and work successfully together. We promote this across the school, both in the classroom and beyond. We place great emphasis upon the development of a broad range of learning skills so that during their time with us our children are able to acquire a love of learning that will last them for a lifetime. We have a very dedicated and committed teaching and support staff team who offer the children many different ways to learn and achieve.


I hope that our website will provide you with a useful introduction to our school. If you like what you see and would like to know more about us then please contact the School Office and make an appointment to come and see us. You will be very welcome.
