We want to provide quality experiences in all aspects of school life which enable children to be happy, successful, keen to learn and therefore achieve their full potential.
Our most recent Ofsted Report dated July 2012 said, ‘This is a good school. Pupils make good progress because teaching is good and management systems to improve pupils’ academic and personal skills are effective. Pupils’ behaviour in and out of lessons is outstanding and they make excellent contributions to safety within the school. Parents and carers are, rightly, very satisfied with the school.
Pupils have very positive attitudes to learning and are all keen to learn. They have a clear understanding of how to keep safe and promote this well through school parliament initiatives. Pupils say they feel extremely safe in school and are taught how to keep themselves safe and healthy.’
Children in the Nursery and Reception years learn through the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. This consists of seven areas of learning. Three areas are crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning. These three are called ‘prime areas’ and are Communication and Language; Physical Development; and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Children will also be supported in four specific areas which are: Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the world and Expressive Arts and Design.
The curriculum in Key stages 1 and 2 is tailored to meet the needs of all children and school ensures that everyone is included in all that the school has to offer. There is a wide range of out-of-hours activities; clubs are available for all ages and cater for a variety of interests, from chess to improving the school grounds. Visits and special events add further enrichment to the curriculum.
If you are interested in gaining a place for your child with us, please contact Mrs Weekes who will guide you through the admissions process. All prospective new parents and children are more than welcome to visit the school by appointment.
