Ethos, Values and Vision
Our ethos and values are evident throughout school, they are truly woven through all we do. Visitors always comment on the friendly and welcoming atmosphere in school. We warmly welcome everyone into school and we are a real community. Our core values: Trust, Friendship, Forgiveness, Respect and Courage are at our heart.
We celebrate, support and encourage each other - all the children and adults in school and our wider community of parents and friends of the school. Together we create a happy, respectful learning environment where it is safe to take risks, enjoy learning and develop courage.
