With this in mind children are at the heart of every decision we make. We aim for every child to be happy, confident risk takers who fulfil their potential. We provide a nurturing environment where we value each child and promote positive attitudes and lifelong learning to help children grow into independent, respectful and creative adults with their own unique gifts and talents.

There are 3 classes in each year group and a 22 place Special Needs Centre in each school.
