Mission Statement

Our vision is to nurture children in a healthy, safe, creative learning environment with our school values and wellbeing at the heart.


Our aim is to encourage children to develop a love of learning, independence, resilience and respect in partnership with parents/carers and the local community. We expect children to be active and responsible members of society.

Our belief is that every child should be enabled to flourish to be what they want to be, and there are no limits to their potential. We strive to be the best we can be.




We provide a high quality, inclusive education based on values which respond to the needs of every child.


We provide a safe, secure nurturing environment that promotes high levels of well-being.


Through our creative curriculum and bright inviting learning environment we inspire children to become confident, independent individuals with lively enquiring minds and a thirst for learning.


Skilled, caring staff lead by example guiding children on their personal aspirational learning journeys through encouragement and support to work together happily and aim high.


Assemblies and reflection enhance opportunities for each child to develop understanding and respect for diversity in Britain and the wider world.


We work in close partnership with parents/carers, Governor and the local and wider community. Our village community play an important part in our identity and we value the resources available to us locally.
