Children here are recognised as unique individuals with specific talents and needs, where they are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure they are happy, confident and that they are provided with needs both relevant now and for their future.
Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum; where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential, this is seen both academically as well as in the specialist teaching of sports, art, music and Spanish. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom.
