We aim to foster in our children values and attitudes which will serve them well throughout their whole lives as we firmly believe that the span of years between four and twelve is most formative and is filled with enthusiasm for living. 

This is achieved by encouraging and channelling energies into the development of a balanced and mature person, able to function on his or her own and with others, displaying social values of benefit to the child and to the community at large.

Within this section you will find detailed aims for the school and these reflect the ethos created by all staff and pupils in the school.
