At our Church School we aim to provide a welcoming atmosphere where staff and children work together to create a happy, secure, caring and stimulating environment. This will be in partnership with the church, parents, governors, and the wider community. All children are given the opportunity to achieve their full potential, to develop responsibility, self-esteem, respect for others and their environment. This will be achieved through a broad and balanced curriculum with high quality teaching and learning experiences. This will be provided in a well-resourced school that encourages creativity and co-operation and where individual efforts are valued and celebrated.




We aim to:

  • Help children develop lively and enquiring minds and to become independent learners following a broad and balanced curriculum.

  • Have detailed awareness for the individual progress of each child in all aspects of their development and education and to reflect this in our teaching

  • Encourage in our children a sense of Christian caring for the community in which they live and the wider world beyond.

  • Provide an atmosphere where respect, trust and tolerance predominate and where polite and appropriate behaviour is expected and valued by all.

  • Recognise the importance of the partnership between our children, their parents and the school.

  • Not discriminate against any child on the grounds of gender, race, disability or religion and to develop in all of our children a respect for other races, cultures and creeds.

  • Establish an environment within which teaching and non-teaching staff, advisors, parents and Governors can work together to achieve these aims.

  • Provide a learning environment which is happy and stimulating, where children have confidence in themselves.

  • Encourage the children to understand the need to lead a healthy lifestyle through healthy eating and regular exercise and that they will carry this understanding into their adult life.
