Be kind, be proud, strive for success
Our school values underpin everything we do, from the way we learn, how we talk to each other, how we play together and what we celebrate.
Our support for personal wellbeing and development enables our children to build trusting friendships, become strong in spirit, make wise personal choices, and have strength of character. They learn to be kind and responsible citizens who can contribute positively to the world in which they live.
Our broad curriculum provides stimulating and engaging learning experiences that enable children to take risks and discover their own unique interests and talents. Through these experiences our pupils build self-belief, are proud of what they achieve and inspire others.
We promote high standards of achievement and a love of learning, encouraging all members of our school community to strive for success. Each child develops the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to have successful, fulfilled childhoods and to provide a strong foundation for secondary education and beyond.
