Prospective Parents

Starting School in September 2022?
 Starting school is a big milestone for your child and we want to provide you with the information you need to make the best informed choice about your child’s future education.
 
We are a small, friendly village school, with 204 pupils and a caring and dedicated staff. I have been headteacher here since September 2014 and am incredibly proud to lead such a happy school where our children always come first.
 
We strive to help all our pupils grow into independent and successful individuals, and although we are proud of the children’s academic achievements, we firmly believe in developing the whole child. Art, music, sport and personal and social education are creatively taught throughout the school, so that all our pupils get off to a flying start in their education.
As parents you have a vital role to play in your child’s education and we look forward to working with you to fulfill our school motto: “Learning Together For Life”
