Our Vision

Jesus inspires us to live the best life that we possibly can.

In our school we:

Belong to God’s family, our school family and our community.

Respect God, ourselves, other people and their differences.

Create a future where we can all achieve our hopes and dreams as part of God’s creation.

Flourish to be confident, caring and happy in God’s love.

“I came that you might have life and live life in all its fullness.”  

John 10:10

We are a happy, friendly and aspirational Church School, who place an emphasis on high standards of behaviour and achievement. All staff work extremely hard to encourage the children in their care to strive to do their best in a supportive and caring environment.

Please enjoy watching our Open Day video below or join us on one of our Open Days on Thursday 19th October and Tuesday 14th November.

    Mad Hair Day 17th May
    Mad Hair Day on Friday 17th May 2024 Dear Parents/Carers, Every year in school the children in years 5 and 6 take part in a school production at the end of the summer term and we hold a day to raise money to upgrade our props and costumes. This year all the children will be watching or performing in ‘Rock Bottom’. As part of our fundraising efforts we are having a Mad Hair Day on Friday 17th May. Your child can wear their hair as mad or as simple as they would like. They could even wear a wig! We would be grateful if you could send a donation with your child on the day. Thank you in anticipation of your support. I’m sure the children will have a fantastic day too! Miss Wheeler
