We offer a safe and secure environment where children can take risks, be happy and grow by:
- Going above and beyond to meet the needs of every child to ensure their success and guide them to reach their aspirations

- Encouraging children to become good citizens, who take an interest in issues, in our local, national and global communities to make their own contribution to secure the future of the world we live in
Our chosen Scripture and Biblical Story which our vision and values are rooted in.
May Christ dwell in your hearts through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love.
The Mustard Seed – Parable – Matthew 13 – 31-32
He set another parable before them, saying, "The Kingdom of Heaven is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field; which indeed is smaller than all seeds. But when it is grown, it is greater than the herbs, and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in its branches."
Our School Values
When we grow the fruit of the spirit we live as children of God, as considerate friends and as members of society who make a difference.
