Our school prides itself in being at the heart of our local community. We have many pupils who are the second generation to attend the school and like me many staff have had, or do have children of their own in the school. This strong commitment from community and staff makes it a very special place to be, where nurture and personal growth are we believe paramount to developing a positive approach to learning that will serve our students for the rest of their lives.
When I had the privilege of becoming the Headteacher in 2009 we made a commitment to creating a school where all are able to fulfil their academic potential through high expectations and a celebration of differences. Where an encompassing ethos of inclusion ensures that aspirations are nurtured and belonging secured. Preparing our children to begin life’s journey by opening a door of learning and exploration that will stay open forever. I believe we are true to this vision and we welcome you to come along and find out more about our wonderful school.

Built in 1986, the school is a spacious and welcoming building that makes full use of its beautiful grounds. It hosts the only state run nursery provision in the catchment providing your child with the continuity of education from the age of three up to eleven.
The school prides itself in providing a welcoming and nurturing atmosphere where each individual child is given the opportunities they need to reach their full potential in all aspects of school life. This begins in our award-winning Early Years Centre which has recently, once again been accredited with the Effective Early Years Education quality mark, and continues up until the children move to one of the local Secondary schools through our close linked transition process.
We offer a wide and varied quality curriculum with a commitment to sensible class sizes and high levels of adult support to enable teachers to tailor their teaching to the needs of the individual child. Alongside our classrooms we have a dedicated Art room, a cookery room and ICT suite all of which contribute to the quality learning experience for all our pupils.
Outside of school, there is a diverse selection of extra-curricular activities from sports to art. In addition to the after school clubs we also run a breakfast club from eight thirty every morning to give working parents a little more flexibility with their child care and, if you need your child to stay on site until six o’clock then there are child care facilities available through an onsite private provider who has close links with the school.
We welcome visitors so why not come and have a look around. For further information or to book an appointment. contact David Purslow (Headteacher) on 01743 236520. We look forward to meeting you soon.
