We pride ourselves in providing a curriculum which is rich and broad in knowledge and skills, meets the needs of the children, and prepares the children to be successful in challenges in the future. We believe in our pupils achieving the highest possible standards, not only in their academic work but in their attitude to life and their understanding of their role as future successful citizens in the twenty-first century.

Our aim is to ensure that children develop and sustain a love of learning and we track pupil progress rigorously in order to set accurate and personal targets for improvement.
We have a system of rewards within school which recognises the hard work and achievement that goes on daily. Stickers and house points are loved by all our children.
We know that high self esteem and confidence are vital to ensuring the best possible life chances for our children. Whilst we encourage our children to excel in academic work, we also support each child to make decisions about their own development and progress, the development of the school and how we as a school engage with the local and extended community.
