We strive to be a nurturing school at the heart of our community.

We are:

Child centred

We have high expectations of all children regardless of their background or abilities.

The needs, interests and well-being of children are at the heart of all decision making.

We work in partnerships to promote the best outcomes for all children.

High quality

We strive to be the best and provide the best for each child, empowering staff to adapt provision and be responsive to the children’s needs.

We seek consistency without demanding uniformity.


We understand how young children learn and have designed our curriculum and our pedagogy to reflect this. Find out about our journey here:



Our curriculum aims to stimulate enquiry, challenge children to think creatively and be purposeful in how they apply their knowledge and develop their skills.


We provide a child-centred, high quality learning environment where children learn through play and exploration that fosters their curiosity, confidence and a love of learning. Our playful approach is at the heart of our school. We follow the children’s interests and encourage them to explore, think creatively, collaborate and play! Adults follow the children, join in with their play, taking every opportunity to model, develop and expand their vocabulary and language. We see children who are thriving- they are extremely happy, they show deep involvement in their play and are making excellent progress in a wide range of knowledge and skills.

We actively promote the following learning attributes in all of our children:

  • Curiosity
  • Cooperation and collaboration
  • Critical thinking 
  • Resilience
  • Being reflective
  • Independence 

These are illustrated through our Learning Power characters

  • Curious cat
  • Helpful Hippo
  • Go for it Gorilla
  • Tough Tortoise
  • Focus Fox
