Inspire Believe Achieve
Our aim is to inspire and encourage our children to believe in their ability to succeed through learning. This vision will enable them to achieve and succeed in reaching their full potential and beyond, now and for their future.
Within our school we work very hard to create a team of teachers, non-teaching and support staff that will support each child in reaching their potential. Many who visit us comment on the strength of our ‘staff team’ and their shared commitment to help every child in the school achieve their best.
We value the broad and balanced curriculum which our staff offers and all children are able to access not only academic, but creative and physical areas of the National Curriculum fully, so that they receive the highest standard of education.
Within a Christian ethos we aim to:
We are a school that prides itself on our Christian values and aims to ensure all of our pupils feel happy, secure and valued, enabling them to make a worthwhile contribution as young people within their community.
Our school provides a gateway for children to discover, explore and learn in a caring environment. Childhood is a magical, wonderful time and our pupils follow a varied and active programme designed to give them the opportunity to build confidence and learn everything they will need for their future.
SMSC stands for spiritual, moral, social and cultural. All schools in England must show how well their pupils develop in SMSC. We hope that this page clearly identifies how we do this within our school, community and families and how we meet some of the required outcomes.
As a Church School Collective worship is an important part of our school day. Collective worship takes place everyday. During Collective Worship, we light a candle to both symbolise Jesus (as light of the world) and also as a visible sign that worship has started and ended. This can also be done when worship is in the classrooms.
Children may be withdrawn from RE /collective worship for religious reasons at the wish of their parents/ carers.

We try to ensure close links with our church and hold services there throughout the academic year.

Every year we support our local church’s flower festival celebrations. Every class creates a display of work linked to the theme which is displayed with the flowers around the church. This year we were asked to create work to represent different countries around the world and all classes produced some wonderfully creative pieces. Pupils from Y6 were also invited down tot he church to create their own small floral decorations which were also shared around the church during the festival.
