Schools main strengths are incorporated into our school core values and the Wordle produced by the children of what is important to them.:
• To nurture and promote the health and wellbeing of all pupils and staff in a safe, supportive and stimulating environment.
• To engage fully and responsibly as active, respectful citizens of an inclusive local, national and global community.
• To encourage creative, critical and collaborative skills, embracing challenges and celebrating achievements of all pupils and staff.
• To establish a learning community where all pupils and staff are confident to express ideas, take risks and reflect, whilst acquiring new knowledge and skills to challenge themselves to achieve the highest standards.
As a school we evaluate our provision through a variety of process to give our children every opportunity to be the very best they can be.
