We wish to create a culture of learning, where children are happy, enthusiastic, motivated and ambitious.
We encourage mutual respect, support and collaboration between all adults and children, both within the school and the wider community.
We believe that it is important to provide a secure, caring and stimulating environment for all our children, thereby promoting a sense of pride in our school.
This can be done most effectively when all staff, parents and children understand their responsibilities and work together towards the same goals, as detailed in our home/school agreement.
