Sowing faith, growing learners, inspiring futures
Our school was founded by the Church with the aim of teaching all children to read and write so that they could study the writings of the bible. Today we provide a broad curriculum, but we still adhere to those original aspirations: hence we believe that everyone in our school community are the 'seeds sown in good soil' Matthew 13:23. We provide the highest quality of teaching and learning, reflecting Christian values and beliefs, in a nurturing but aspirational environment where children develop as caring, compassionate and confident young people. We make learning exciting, fun and inspiring, give praise and encouragement to bring out the best in everyone and ensure they flourish.
We recognise the importance of the history of our school and continue to preserve its religious character following Church of England guidelines, not least through our close relationship with our churches and their members. We serve the children of our five parishes, and those from further afield, by providing a secure and safe place to learn where everyone has a voice and is heard.
