It has always been our belief that the task of a primary school is to provide the children with a happy and secure environment in which they can attain their full potential.

Our aims are:

  • To provide a good foundation of skills, particularly in English, Mathematics and Science.
  • To enable children to develop their own individuality and means of expression, using a wide range of approaches.
  • To develop self-discipline in a supportive and caring environment and encourage honesty, initiative, self-control and acceptable social behaviour.
  • To provide opportunities for a rich variety of experience, so that children can live a full, active, healthy and useful life within the community as a whole.
  • To build up a genuine enjoyment of both work and play.
  • To open new fields of study and lay the foundation for the pursuit of knowledge.
  • To involve all children in tasks which will give them opportunities to use their initiative in school and in extra-curricular activities.
  • To ensure equal opportunities for both girls and boys.

 We believe that education is a partnership with parents. There are many ways in which you can become actively involved in the life of our school.


Open evenings are offered three times a year. On these occasions you are invited to meet with your child’s class teacher,discuss your child’s development and progress, and look at their work. You will also receive a written report in the Summer term. If you feel there is something causing your child or you some concern, please do not hesitate to contact us. All staff are available before and after school.


Parents and friends of the school also assist in many ways giving much valued support:listening to children read ,lending a hand on school trips, working with small groups, assisting with art and craft and cooking are some examples.

In these and many other ways we are able to work together. If you would like to help do not hesitate to contact the Headteacher.


It is important to us that you understand what your child is learning in school. Each term the class website is updated  to provide you with a summary of work that is going to be covered, so that you can share in your child’s enjoyment of learning.
