Aims and Values

Our Motto: Learning in Partnership.


We believe that everyone should contribute to the ethos of our schools; all staff, pupils, helpers, governors and parents work together to enable all children to achieve their potential.

Good teamwork and supportive partnerships are essential in achieving the high standards we strive for.  Our children are encouraged to be curious, polite, friendly and responsible and to take an active role within the local and global community.
