We promote fundamental British Values which are: democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.

Our expectations are that children are READY (to learn), RESPECTFUL (to everyone) and SAFE.

Things to celebrate about our school

I wanted to pass on how delighted I am with how my son is settling back to school this year. I want to express how happy I am with Mr Saxby and the good start my boy has had. I want to praise the leadership team for their efforts and coping with the demands of lockdown, school year start and changes on a daily basis. I think the school has been amazing.

It was so lovely to have a tour of the school ....It’s such a lovely school and I have never had a bad experience with the school and my daughter is thriving there.

I think you all do a great job and be proud of the effort you put it to make it lovely school and make our children happy.

I was completely blown away with all the pictures and actually seeing the lovely packed lunch on picnic day.

We select our child's meals not really knowing that they are offered much more than "cheese sandwich, fish fingers and chips or pasta pots" all that additional fruit/salad and homemade puddings. The fact it's all cooked on site is fantastic and you can see the effort from the staff. Since the new manager, Sylvia, took over it seems to of improved beyond the normal school dinners!

I should thank you and all the other members of staff for all support you are providing my son and the other students at this uncertain time.


 We appreciate your hard work.

Absolutely  fantastic job you have been doing in challenging times. Through heartbreak and probably exhaustion you have kept going.
