Vision, Mission and Aims

Believe – Create – Succeed

At the heart of our ethos is our belief in celebrating the creativity in every child. This doesn’t necessarily mean artistic creativity – though a walk around our school will show that we love to celebrate artistic creativity too and we are proud of our Gold Artsmark award. It means finding and unlocking strengths in every child, bringing it out, celebrating success, and letting their success shine through.

Every child is good at something. We help them find and nurture their strengths and through celebrating their success we try to give each child the confidence to grow and to go on from our school and tackle future challenges.

Mission Statement

A safe, creative and happy school where children and staff strive to be the ‘best they can be’, with the skills and resilience to grow into the successful, life-long learners of the future.
