Ethos and Values


The school ethos should be felt as you walk around and meet the staff and pupils.  We are a small school and therefore are able to prioritise the individual needs of each child. Nevertheless, we have high aspirations and expectations and particularly value co-operative, sharing and group work which represents developing social maturity in young people.  Each class teacher has pastoral responsibility for their own class and will always endeavour to maintain good communications with home.


You will see that the word "parent" is used throughout the prospectus.  Where the word "parent" appears it extends to any person having parental responsibility for a child in accordance with the terms of the Children’s Act 1989.
