All pupils access our well structured curriculum that prioritises their mental and physical health and well-being. We develop the whole child and celebrate their uniqueness. A love of nature is stimulated throughout the school. Christian Values are explicitly taught and embedded in school life. Our curriculum is broad and balanced- creativity in all areas of life encouraged and celebrated. Pupils build their global understanding and learn to understand and respect themselves and others, whilst also building a greater appreciation of the value of possessions and experiences. Pupils are given opportunities to learn about career paths and options to promote aspiration.

Respect for themselves and others.
Appreciation of the value of possessions and a desire to respect their things and maximise the choices and opportunities that they have.
Good habits for their physical & mental wellbeing that they can take into adulthood.
To be confident readers.
A rich vocabulary and good communication skills.
