'Together we Sparkle and Shine'

‘My daughter absolutely adores going to school.’  OFSTED 2019


Our Vision

 To create an outstanding, caring school community  using nurture principles at its centre. We want everyone to be valued and developed  as individuals, learners and as members of the community. Everyone has to feel welcome, protected, comfortable and have their anxieties contained.

Mission Statement

Our children come first.  Our school is committed to developing each child:


  • academically
  • socially
  • physically
  • emotionally
  • spiritually


We believe it is the right of all pupils to have access to an education which:

  • offers a high quality, wide ranging, creative curriculum

  • instils a love of learning and supports future aspirations

  • nurtures, empowers and enables them to become self-assured and resilient learners

  • ensures that the most important objective is to learn 'how to learn'

  • challenges and stimulates

  • develops and builds upon individual strengths and talents

  • embraces all developmental needs
  • teaches respect for others’ values and beliefs
  • prepares our children for a productive, independent and morally responsible adulthood                                               


We aim to:

  • inspire, motivate and challenge all children
  • nurture confident, resilient, cooperative, independent life-long learners
  • promote high self-esteem
  • develop citizens who have a strong sense of right and wrong
  • achieve high standards in all areas of learning and teaching

In an environment which is:

  • safe and stimulating
  • fun, exciting and purposeful
  • well-resourced and well organised
  • fully inclusive of all
  • designed to provide opportunities for all in the school community

We will achieve this by:

  • having high expectations
  • working in close partnership with parents and carers
  • using a variety of teaching strategies where pupils are encouraged and motivated
  • providing excellent learning opportunities and effective teaching
  • striving to be a centre for truly excellent teachers
  • developing staff that are committed to their own learning journey and the sharing of quality practice
  • instilling school values
  • promoting good manners
  • having clear rules, rewards and sanctions
  • sharing and celebrating the successes of every member of our school community
