Our Mission Statement is ‘Achieving together in a Christian School’ We aim to provide a safe, happy and inspiring environment in which our children can become:
• Confident individuals, who can positively face the successes and challenges of life. • Successful learners, who can take their place in a constantly evolving world. • Responsible citizens, who are able to make a positive contribution to today’s diverse society. • Appreciative of other people’s uniqueness and talents and recognised and celebrated for their own.
We aim to ensure Christian values are seen in action. School Values
Our school’s core values are compassion, honesty, respect, courage, faith and love. These were developed by the children in consultation with parents, staff and Governors. The use of the hand helps us all to remember these values.
RESPECT HONESTY COURAGE COMPASSION FAITH
ther in a Christian School School Organisation
As a smaller than average sized school, staff get to know children extremely well resulting in focused teaching and learning, with strong care, guidance and support.
Our school has approximately 180 children aged from 4 - 11 years. These children are organised into year groups, generally with 30 pupils in each class.
Within each class the children work in both ability and in mixed-ability groups ensuring all children are supported and challenged at a level which is appropriate for their ability. A full list of staff and Governors is included at the back of this booklet.
The Extended School Day
There are a wide range of activities and clubs that take place in lunchtime and after school. These may include computing, French, sports, music, art, construction and social clubs. Activities change on a termly basis in order to give children a wide range of experiences and opportunities. There are clubs for pupils in years 1 - 6.
We have a breakfast club which opens daily from 8 am providing childcare, food and activities. This is manned by school staff on the school site. After school child care, until 6 pm, is also available. There is a charge for childcare clubs.
