Key Information

We are committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all the children living in our local area.  We believe that all children, including those identified as having Special Educational Needs have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life.


We believe that all children and adults should be equally valued in school.  We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children and families can flourish and feel safe.
