"Welcome to our wonderful school!"
Our website should give you a flavour of our school which I hope you will find useful. Please visit the class blogs that are completed weekly and my blog which I try and complete daily!
The governors, staff, parents and children are all very proud of our caring school.
Our Mission Statement is:
'Inspire to guide, challenge and achieve'
To be a family orientated, caring community school where all children thrive and have the opportunity to exceed their potential through work and play.
We foster a caring and welcoming ethos which is commented upon by many visitors and our children achieve well. Aside from academic success, we pride ourselves on giving our children many opportunities to learn and develop in order to become great citizens in the future.
I am sure that the information available on the website is helpful to you, but can not replace seeing things for yourself. Visits to the school are warmly welcomed, please come and see us in action!
Please contact the school office for an appointment with myself so I can show you what is on offer for your family.

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE MATTERS
Amendments have been made to the Education Regulations governing, amongst other things, school attendance. These amendments came into force on 1st September 2013.
The amendments make clear that headteachers may not grant any leave of absence during term time unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Regular school attendance is vital in ensuring that children maximise the educational opportunities available to them.
If you’re thinking about booking your summer holiday.
School can no longer allow time off for holidays during term time.
If you take your child on holiday during term time you risk getting a Penalty Notice Fine.
