Our vision is for our school to be a stimulating, safe and respectful learning environment, where all members of our community work in partnership to achieve the best for every child. We provide learning experiences that motivate children to believe they can succeed in all that they do, creating a culture where we enjoy challenges in our learning, knowing that we can always aim higher. This is promoted through our mission statement...

'Setting no limits on what we can achieve with a positive attitude to life.'

Well-structured lessons comprise of appropriate pace and challenge that are inclusive of all children, regardless of differences, to ensure that all learners achieve their full potential; we pride ourselves in making a difference. High self-esteem is one of the keys to success in life and we aim to ensure that our pupils leave us as caring, happy and confident young people.

We welcome visits and look forward to meeting you and your child.
