Head Teacher’s Introduction

Welcome to our school.  Each child arrives as an individual, and the school’s heart and soul goes into developing that individuality together with a sense of social and moral responsibility and a love of learning, encouraging children to live life in all its fullness. (John 10:10)

By providing new opportunities and challenges throughout their time in the school, we aim to teach our children how to learn and to think about the possibilities in their intellectual, physical and social surroundings. Team working, problem-solving, self-expression, confidence in front of an audience – these and other skills needed by the next generation are embedded in the day’s lessons and activities.

The school works because of the commitment from the team of people who run it. We have a clear, shared vision – personalisation through inclusion: all children are valued for who they are and what they bring. We are a school with a sense of fun. Children enjoy coming here – and we know they do because they tell us they do. We actively encourage aspects such as wonder, curiosity, adventure, bravery and resilience. We ask our children to take responsibility and take decisions that make a difference.

Our collaborative approach means that, through networks of schools, our children are able to work with their peers in other settings giving them the experience of working in larger groups while maintaining our own small cohorts. We are open to new ideas and keen to do things with, and not to, our learners.

As a Church of England school we uphold Christian values and develop our living relationship with God, through Jesus.

I trust that this website will serve to provide you with a sense of what it means to be a member of our school.
