Our Vision

Jesus inspires us to live the best life that we possibly can.

In our school we:

Belong to God’s family, our school family and our community.

Respect God, ourselves, other people and their differences.

Create a future where we can all achieve our hopes and dreams as part of God’s creation.

Flourish to be confident, caring and happy in God’s love.

“I came that you might have life and live life in all its fullness.”  

John 10:10

We are a happy, friendly and aspirational Church School, who place an emphasis on high standards of behaviour and achievement. All staff work extremely hard to encourage the children in their care to strive to do their best in a supportive and caring environment.

Please enjoy watching our Open Day video below or join us on one of our Open Days on Thursday 19th October and Tuesday 14th November.
