Overview

 Welcome to our school.   

We have a very talented teaching team and support staff team who offer the children many different ways to excel and achieve. We promote children taking responsibility for their learning, being resourceful and resilient, and being able to reason and reflect on their learning. We promote children trying hard, learning from mistakes, enjoying challenges and redrafting and improving their work. We can also cater for special educational needs and have a diversity of experience with many different special educational needs.

We teach an exciting and enjoyable curriculum, with dedicated English, Mathematics and Science lessons. Art, DT, History and Geography are taught together in lines of enquiry. There are further details about our lines of enquiry on the website. All children can take part in two hours of PE weekly with further opportunities in out of school clubs to extend this. We also teach Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship, ICT, Music, RE and French to all year groups.

We encourage the pupils to be involved in their own learning and take responsibility for their own learning. We encourage them to have opinions and take part fully in all aspects of school. There are many opportunities for them to join in, including class and school councils, monitors for roles in school, ambassadors, librarians, house captains etc. There are also a variety of committees which children take part in including our eco-committee and our global partnership committee. We encourage them to take a pride in their learning and achievements and hold weekly celebration assembles.

The school was inspected in February 2018 and judged as 'Good' across all areas of the inspection. We are now committed to moving the school towards an outstanding judgement.

We aim to work closely with parents in partnership to support children’s learning. We hold regular consultation evenings which are well attended by up to 90% of our parents. We also survey our parents, staff and pupils on a regular basis to help evaluate and enhance the support we provide. Families receive a monthly newsletter and have a Home School Liaison Officer employed for the full school day dedicated to parents, carers and children.

We have three classes in each year group (except Year 6 who have two classes), with twenty-one classes in total in school. Our aim is that all pupils achieve their potential within a high quality learning environment and caring ethos. We have refurbished all our classrooms to a high standard and all have interactive whiteboards to support high quality of learning. We enjoy high quality learning resources with extensive grounds including our large field to support PE and outdoor learning.

Our South Building welcomes visitors and parents with a main reception area and houses the school's Foundation Stage Unit (Nursery and Reception) and also Key stage 1.  All age groups make use of the excellent facilities we offer across the whole school site. 

The North Building provides learning facilities for Key stage 2 and has extensive resources including a fully equipped Nurture Room. In this building ICT is available to all the children as continuous provision in every classroom. This includes IPads, Laptops, Desktop computers, cameras and interactive whiteboards. We believe our youngsters should be able to access technology whenever possible rather than in a timetabled ICT suite. It is very important that they can access a variety of media in preparation for High School and the technological world we live in.

Both buildings offer extensive playground and field areas specifically planned to suit the age ranges taught in each building. Beautiful timber trails and play areas have been created for the children's enjoyment. There is also a forest school area, vegetable garden and nature area.
