Our skilled staff are committed to helping our children achieve the very best they can.

There is an effective whole-school focus on improving teaching and learning through support, challenge and coaching. Teaching and learning have improved as a consequence, resulting in steady improvements in pupils’ progress and achievement. Teachers plan carefully to build on pupils’ learning both in lessons and over time.
