We will achieve this by providing our children with:

  • a safe environment within which they can learn with confidence;
  • a challenging curriculum which is taught in accordance with national standards;
  • a range of activities, resources and teaching according to their needs as a whole and as individuals;
  • support and stimulation to promote the desire to learn; a positive example for them to follow;
  • opportunities to develop self respect and self discipline so that they can take responsibility for their own actions;
  • a strong, collaborative partnership between families, the school, the community and the local education authority.


Our values are:

  • for all our children are entitled to dignity, respect, guidance, and to develop their full potential;
  • that none of our children will suffer discrimination on the grounds of their race, faith, gender or ability;
  • for our children and their families to be entitled to our honesty;
