Home School Agreement

 

School Ethos

We recognise pupils as unique individuals with specific talents and needs. We offer our pupils a varied and engaging curriculum which is provided by a dedicated team of enthusiastic and hard-working teachers and support staff. The happiness and success of every child is central to our school’s work. Promoting high levels of achievement in all aspects of a child’s development is important to us, and is reflected in all we do.

We continuously work hard to develop what we do, and aspire to being a learning community that educates and nurtures young minds. We want our pupils to think independently, be resourceful, solve problems, and communicate well. A successful school relies on partnership and understanding with parents and the community that it serves.
