Principal's Welcome

Welcome to our website. We aim to serve our community by providing a high quality of education for all our pupils.  At the very centre of all we do are the children in our care.

Our intention is that this website will give all who visit it a very clear impression of what our school aims to achieve. If, however, you would like to visit us to find out more please contact the school office to arrange an appointment. 

'Learning to Live' is our vision statement.  Our school strives for high academic standards but we never compromise in nurturing our pupils' enjoyment of life.

Thank you for visiting our site.

Positive Value of the Month

Be ready to always forgive.

In February our focus value is for all our pupils to be Responsible. To be responsible means to think carefully about our words or actions and consider the impact of what we do on others and ourselves.  Responsible pupils are those who accept the consequences of their actions and are prepared to say sorry if they make a mistake.      

Internet Safety Hint:

On the 7th February we celebrated Internet Safety Day 2017.  As a school we are hoping soon to achieve our 360 ICT E-Safety Award.  Part of our award is to help pupils, staff, parents and our community be E-Smart.  This means taking responsibility for the feeling of others and keeping themselves safe.
