We are a happy, friendly school and passionate about providing quality learning opportunities for children.

- Supportive parents who want to engage with school: who hold high aspirations for their children
- An inclusive ethos where every member of the school community is valued
- A school community in which relationships are positive, expectations are high, and every single person is constantly learning
- An environment in which you will see people smiling, staff working together, people who care for one another, and people who respect and trust one another.
- A school dedicated to the personal and professional development of all staff
