Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
We are a "learning to learn" school and our experienced and enthusiastic staff, fully supported by parents, governors and friends, provide a caring and structured learning environment.
Our aims are:

• To be tolerant and understanding with respect for the rights, views and property of others.
• To develop in children a responsible and independent attitude towards work and towards their roles in society.
• To enable children to achieve their potential in terms of academic achievement, aesthetic appreciation and spiritual awareness.
