About Us

Having confidence in a school comes from knowing and understanding what is happening within it. If you join our community, I hope that you will extend your knowledge through contact with me, members of my staff and governors and take advantage of the occasions to meet staff informally and formally as well as enjoying the wide range of social events organised by our very active Parent Staff Association (PSA).

Parental involvement is really welcomed at our school. It is important that mutual understanding and trust should be the basis of our shared responsibility for the care and education of your child. We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expect all staff and visitors to share this commitment.

I am very proud of our school and our success in providing a high quality learning environment for children so they can thrive as individuals both academically and socially.
