The school is 3 form entry and approximately 500 children aged between 4 and 11 are on role. Each year group has three classes and these are grouped together and have their own area and entrance.
We have our own swimming pool, music drama room, ICT suites and gym. Our outdoor sports facilities are excellent; we have 2 large fields and an all weather pitch. Our 21 classrooms are well proportioned and each has an interactive white board. The ‘discovery room’ is packed with electronic devices to facilitate learning using the latest technology.
We offer a broad curriculum that promotes creativity and independent learning. Learning activities are personalised to meet the needs of the individual child. We are proud of the high standards we achieve in literacy and numeracy and of the excellent way our pupils behave.
- Ensure that all members of the school community feel safe, valued and included. Promote physical and mental well-being and the belief that we can all grow and develop through our own efforts.
