We have a fabulous dedicated team of staff, governors and parents who are passionate about nurturing and developing our children as lifelong learners. We have strong links with the infant school, sharing the same site and joint PTA (parent and teacher association), as well as good links within the community valuing positive relationships with St John's Church and the local care and residential homes.

We promote our values of 'Together we achieve through P.R.I.D.E.' - Perseverance, Respect, Independence, Discovery and Enthusiasm, equipping our pupils with the skills necessary to achieve the challenges they face. We have high expectations of behaviour, attendance and academic progress.

Parents are encouraged to be fully involved in the life of the school through trips, helping out with activities or through fund raising and fun events organised by the PTA.
