We are an equality-based school where we live by the mottos ‘no child an outsider’ and ‘learn together to live together’. Our school celebrates diversity, individuality and respects each child’s identity, respecting that of their family equally. This enables us to develop the whole child, encouraging all children to excel. Our unique curriculum and core principles enable us to create a nurturing environment that develops the skills our children need to be global citizens for the increasingly diverse society that we live in.

Our core principles are:

Equality based – all children having equal rights of access to the school and children of al social, cultural and religious backgrounds being equally respected
Co-Educational – all children are encouraged to explore their full range of abilities and opportunities
Child – centred – we will put the children at the heart of every decision and activity. If it is not in the interest...

Our core principles are:

Equality based – all children having equal rights of access to the school and children of al social, cultural and religious backgrounds being equally respected
Co-Educational – all children are encouraged to explore their full range of abilities and opportunities
Child – centred – we will put the children at the heart of every decision and activity. If it is not in the interest of the children’s learning or welfare then why do it?
Democratically run – we will encourage active participation of parents, children and the community in the daily life of the school whilst positively affirming the professional role of the teachers
We actively question whether what we do is for the children’s learning and welfare. We believe that a commitment to high academic standards is possible alongside a creative and ethical curriculum. The ‘Learn Together Curriculum’ is taught daily and integrated with the National Curriculum and the Early Years Curriculum in reception.
