We are proud to say we are a ‘Rights Respecting School’ and achieved the Unicef’s Rights Respecting School Award in July 2017 which demonstrates our commitment to pupil’s welfare. We believe that all children have the right to a good quality education (Article 28) and that this education should develop talents and abilities (Article 29).
We provide a friendly, caring environment and have high expectations of behaviour and standards. We value each child and, through careful assessment of their knowledge, skills and abilities, aim to help them achieve their personal best. The aims of our school help us support each pupil to be their very best and achieve their full potential.
