As a Church of England Voluntary Aided School we foster the development of Christian ethics and principles within the curriculum and in the day to day running of the school, through the relationship between those who are part of the school community: children, staff, parents/guardians and governors. We exist for the purpose of educating the whole child: intellectually, physically, morally and socially, according to Christian principles and for children to experience faith as part of their lives.

Our aims for the school are:

  • To stimulate and develop the child’s interests and capabilities, based on our belief that all children are God’s children with their own particular skills and abilities.
  • To give each child experience of a wide programme of study including the requirements of the National Curriculum.
    to make provision for all pupils to develop their academic, social and cultural potential.
  • To foster an attitude of care and respect for others through the religious and moral education and through the general ethos of the school.
  • To develop skills appropriate to the individual child’s capabilities.
  • To encourage care and respect of the environment and the local community, alongside an awareness of the wider community in which we live.
  • To provide equality of opportunity and equality of regard for every member of the school community.

Our aims for the school’s parents/guardians are:

  • To stimulate and develop the child’s interests and capabilities.
  • To encourage care and respect of the environment and the local community, alongside an awareness of the wider community in which we live.
  • To provide equality of opportunity and equality of regard for every member of the school community.

Our aims for the school’s community are:

  • To actively encourage members of the community to become involved in certain of the school activities, and to have opportunities to contribute to our school life.
