Our Ethos, Our Vision, Our Values


Our School’s Motto:

“Only my best is good enough for me.”



We have established five school values which underpin our whole school community. These values will be introduced from January 2018.

Our school values are respect, resilience, responsibility kindness and cooperation.

Headteacher- Mrs Holgate


This is a caring school and our main aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where all children are given full opportunity to develop the abilities they possess.  To this end children are encouraged to think for themselves and to use their own initiative.  The staff are determined to provide every child with a thorough grounding in the basic skills of Literacy and Numeracy.  The development of social, physical and aesthetic potential will also be encouraged.  Parents are invited to help in fulfilling these aims and become "Partners" in the education of their own children.

We endeavour to establish high moral standards and hope that your child will grow into a mature, creative, tolerant and responsible adult, well able to play a full and constructive role in society.

Within the resources available (financial and human) we shall seek to develop every child physically, mentally and socially by providing:


  • High quality learning opportunities
  • High quality teaching
  • A well trained, highly motivated staff
  • A broad and balanced curriculum planned to meet the needs of all children
  • A supportive ethos where all school members are made to feel valued
  • Appropriate assessment and tracking of pupils development
  • Suitable resources
  • A safe, secure and stimulating environment
  • High expectations
  • Support for excellent attendance and punctuality
  • A variety of extra curricular opportunities
  • Strong and effective links with the community
  • Encouragement to parents to participate in their child's learning
