In our school we aim to create a friendly, safe and happy environment for all. We aim to build on success not failure, so our children will be encouraged to the full in anything and everything they are good at, or have a keen interest in developing.
We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum in line with the National Curriculum. Great emphasis is placed upon child centred learning, developing independence, acquiring skills for life and ensuring that all children feel confident and valued in a safe environment.
