Enjoy, Achieve and Succeed

We believe strongly in a broad and balanced curriculum that engages children and stimulates them to achieve their very best.

Children’s views on what they are learning are regularly sought and individual progress is closely monitored through our rigorous tracking system. This allows staff to support and extend learning

When appropriate, children with specific learning difficulties are given personalised provision to access the main curriculum. We pride ourselves on our achievements with those for whom the gentle, nurturing approach is essential. Rigour with the understanding of individual needs co-exist.
