We are a small community church school made up of 160 kind, motivated and excited learners. Our Christian values of care, learn and forgive are felt throughout our school and we keep central to all we do. Our children are confident and proud of their school and belonging to it. We believe education should not only equip children academically and emotionally but provide memories and shape our children to 'live life in all its fullness'; (John 10:10).

We are a staff team who support and encourage each other's development to ensure that the children have the best education they can whilst they are with us. We welcome new ideas and approaches into our school. We believe in implementing change through coaching and team development, empowering us all to achieve more.
