Vision & Values
Our vision is flourishing in learning and love within a happy, Christian family.
Do everything in love
1 Corinthians 16:14
Our values are the ways that we seek to do things. As a Church of England federation, these are rooted in the Christian faith, but are values that are important to us, whatever our faith or background. The values are taught to children in order for them to have a knowledge and understanding of different life values and skills which will help to make them well rounded and valuable member of the community.Learn more

- I have found through personal experience the move from infant to junior school has given the children the opportunity to develop their independence; I have also noticed a change in their maturity. At the end of Year 2, the transition was managed really well and has been seamless in my experience.Parent
