Headteacher’s Welcome

Our school is a very happy, focused and special place to teach and learn. Our mantra is, ‘Be you…Explore…Excel’ because, quite simply, we are passionate about children developing a secure identity to be the very best they can be. We believe in developing life-long learners who can make a positive impact. Our children will help create a world that values, embraces and celebrates equality and diversity.

Our ambitious and dedicated team works in close partnership with families and the community to enable learners to immerse in school values and become:

  • Secure
  • Talented
  • Achievers,
  • Responsible &
  • Skilful

We develop the whole child. Our curriculum weaves emotional, social, moral, spiritual, physical and academic exploration and engagement. We support each other to have very high expectations and to learn with resilience and open-minds.

We want all children to leave us believing in themselves, appreciating other perspectives and equipped with the confidence and skills to take the next steps to achieve their dreams.

Our learners are STARS in the making!

Please feel very welcome to contact us for any help or support we can offer.
