• motivated, well-behaved and caring children

• a modern, spacious and well-resourced learning environment utilising Apple laptops and iPads throughout

• enthusiastic staff, parents and governors who want the very best for the children in their care

• experienced learning support assistants in all classes

• is passionate about learning and enabling children to achieve their potential

• is keen to take a lead in a curriculum area and plan this throughout the school
