Our mission statement is shown on the banner above.
Simply, we believe that the partnership between school and families is the most important one for our children to succeed. To succeed, we aim to create a stimulating learning environment for the children, creating a caring school where the children are safe, feel valued and can achieve their best.
To achieve this, staff, families and governors have agreed the following aims: -

- To encourage self-discipline, the acceptance of personal responsibility for their own behaviour and to be caring and sensitive to the needs of others and the environment.

- To deliver the education programme as defined in the National Curriculum in an exciting and relevant way that motivates the children to learn and raises expectations of achievement.
- To ensure the acquisition of techniques and skills so that children become literate and numerate.
