Our school aims to provide a high quality education within a learning environment that fosters Christian values and beliefs and is safe, secure, caring, purposeful and stimulating for all our pupils. We want each member of our school community to feel valued and respected and to have an understanding of their responsibility to others in the local community. We are committed to providing all our pupils with a rich, broad and balanced curriculum that is inclusive, relevant, challenging and fosters engagement in and enjoyment of learning. We want all our pupils to have the opportunity, enthusiasm and confidence to succeed and realise their full potential in all aspects of their development so that they are prepared for future opportunities, responsibilities and experiences.
