Mission Statement / School Ethos

We believe that each and every child is special; that they deserve the best childhood and whole educational experience.  This is at the heart of our ethos and everything we do in school.

We will work in partnership with families and the community to provide the environment and opportunities that enable our children to be the best they can be, happy, secure, independent and successful.

We believe that it is important to develop core values by which to live and develop a moral awareness.
