Our School Mission Statement
In this learning community, education is about developing the skills, qualities and aspirations needed for all our learners to experience success; lead happy, fulfilling lives and make a positive contribution to society. It is about igniting a love of learning and a quest for excellence that will remain with our learners throughout their lives in whatever they do. The high quality education we provide will be rooted in our common values such as: empathy and respect for other people; an appreciation of the world that we all share; honesty and fairness; kindness, hard work, good manners, laughter and fun.
Children learn best when they are inspired to believe in themselves and are not afraid to fail but are prepared to take risks, wrestle with challenges, persevere with problems and ultimately achieve success. They are motivated to learn through first hand experiences within a broad and rich curriculum that is tailored to the needs of the individual. Children respond to stimulating challenges that, with encouragement and support, they are able to grasp: and every little success is another valuable step along the journey of discovery we call “learning”.
The school will work with its partners to provide an outstanding curriculum and a happy, safe environment in which there is equality of opportunity for all learners to realise their potential. The school is committed to developing an understanding and respect for the different cultures that comprise the local and wider community, and a revulsion against all forms of prejudice and persecution. Our team aim to provide tailored support for local families to ensure that all children are given the best start in life now – and have the best prospect of a happy successful life in the future.
The teachers and teaching assistants will use their creativity to plan and deliver exciting and well-resourced lessons that stimulate the curiosity and imagination of all pupils and enable them to acquire skills and understanding in literacy and numeracy. They will have high expectations of work and behaviour and always lead by example. Lunchtime staff will help to develop the personal and social skills of the children, ensure that they are safe and happy and encourage good behaviour.
Every child will develop good self-esteem and be able to recognise and develop their own individual skills and talents, understanding that they can achieve success if they work hard. Their confidence and independence as creative thinkers will enable them to meet the challenges which, although we may not be able to predict, the future undoubtedly holds. As they step out of our school for the last time, every child will be well equipped for the next stage of a life-long learning journey and pursuit of excellence.
Our office can be reached on 01909 771207 where you will most likely speak to Diane Erskine (Administrative Assistant) who will deal with any queries.

The School Day
School starts at 9:00am and finishes at 3:20pm
Children should arrive at school about five minutes before the start of the morning session. The school accepts responsibility for the care of the children from 8.50am onwards when our school caretaker, Mr Dove, welcomes pupils onto the playground. Pupils should not arrive before this time. Please ensure that children keep to the pavements when walking to and from school. No crossing patrol operates at lunchtime or after school.
Children who have to leave the premises early should be collected by a parent or nominated adult. They will need to sign that they have collected the child.
