Our aim is for each child to reach their full potential, to be confident, keen and resilient learners who are well prepared for their next steps.


Ethos and Values

At our schools we provide a welcoming, happy, caring and safe community.

We work in close partnership with parents, carers and the wider community to provide high quality educational opportunities and experiences of school life.

We provide a carefully planned curriculum and well structured environment in order to offer a high quality education that is broad, rich and exciting for all pupils.

By supporting and challenging every child we aim to help each of them to develop their individual skills and abilities to their full potential.

We welcome prospective parents, carers and children to visit our schools to experience all that we can offer.
