Information about the school

About us and our federation:

We are a small federation, consisting of our Infant and Junior school.

We created our federation 5 years ago in order to ensure consistently strong practice across the primary phase. While still 2 separate schools with their own identities, we have a shared governing body and the leadership team works very closely together, sharing its vision and values in order to Nurture, Inspire and Achieve.

The children are at the heart of all decision making and we are passionate about sharing our strong practice with the community and other schools.

Visits to the school are highly encouraged – we would love you to see what makes us unique.
