A School where each child is known and cared for as an individual.

An environment in which our pupils feel valued, safe and enjoy School.

A School where every child is challenged and supported to succeed academically.


We are passionate about teaching and learning and strongly believe that what happens in our individual classrooms is the key to the overall success of our School. The single most important factor in a pupil’s academic success is the quality of their teachers, and we believe whole school success comes from common experiences, consistent teaching and learning, high expectations and shared values.

Rewarding success

We aim to create a positive and motivated atmosphere, within which pupils can take pride in their achievements. We believe that through formal recognition of achievement, a positive attitude to learning or though community mindedness, pupils should be recognised and rewarded.

In order to promote this aim and to create a positive school community, the whole School rewards policy is in place to achieve the following purpose and principles.

  • To promote a positive ethos through a culture of praise.
  • To motivate and encourage pupils.
  • To develop self-confidence, self-esteem that leads to further personal development.
  • To recognise pupils’ effort and achievement.
  • To recognise and reward pupils’ contribution and commitment to the school.
  • To ensure parents are kept informed of their son or daughter’s progress and achievements.
