Who we are

All staff work as a team, creating a friendly, caring atmosphere, which is reflected throughout the school.

We aim to provide support to classes and children to meet their specific needs. This is often provided through Learning Support Assistant time in classes working with individuals and groups of children. The maximum number of children in each class is 30. 

We are fortunate in being able to employ Learning Support and Special Needs Assistants to support the teaching staff, but recognise that Quality First Teaching, backed up by good assessment, feedback and metacognitive thinking for children is invaluable.
