We are ambitious with our desire to achieve excellence for all at our school. Active involvement leads children to become independent and creative, so high standards are achieved.
Children’s progress is carefully monitored to make sure that they are given extra support when necessary and a higher level of challenge when appropriate. Parents are kept well informed through parents’ evenings and annual reports. We also ensure that regular personalised information leaflets keep you up to date with your child’s progress. Parents are also welcome to have an informal chat with the class teacher at the end of the school day.
We believe in enriching and supporting learning through first-hand experiences. Educational visits and visitors to the school focus on and underline the children’s understanding of the work we cover.
The highlight for many children is their year 6 residential trip to the PGL centre on the Isle of White. For some it is their first time away from home, for many, it is also their first chance to delight in activities they have never before experienced; abseiling, climbing, dragon boating and raft building to list a few. It is a wonderful opportunity; children learn to work together to succeed in a set task and their self-esteem and sense of responsibility increases dramatically in just a few short days.
