Our children are taught by a team of dedicated and experienced staff, who lead the school in a spirit of willingness and co-operation. They work effectively as one team with the needs of each individual child a priority.

The following are comments from our 2014 Ofsted inspection report:
The headteacher and governors provide strong and effective leadership. They have high expectations and are working well to make sure that the quality of teaching and pupils’ achievement improve further.
Progress in lessons is good. Pupils are encouraged to think for themselves and to work with each other to solve problems, making good gains in their knowledge and understanding. Work in pupils’ books shows that they develop skills quickly and make good rates of progress in all subjects.
Pupils behave well and have highly positive attitudes to learning. The school works well to make sure that pupils know how to stay safe.
Pupils are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities beyond the classroom and these ensure that they are well prepared for the next stage of their education.
Literacy and numeracy skills are provided for well and are always linked to the range of experiences pupils encounter along with additional spiritual, moral, social and cultural learning.
