Notice Board

Check out our new displays showing our vision and values

Values and behaviour.jpg

It is our belief that all children are of equal value, that every child in the school has the right to be taught without being interrupted or disturbed, and that all adults have the right to teach and work with children without having their authority or role undermined. In the school community, all children have a right to feel safe, secure, accepted and valued. The school will ensure that right wherever possible. The children have discussed what they feel to be their rights and have developed 3 simple rules that they believe will make the school a better place for all.

These clearly link with our school

values of:

Respect, Optimism, Enthusiasm, Friendly, Achievers, Ready and Motivated and with our school motto of

“Together we make a difference.”


• Be Safe • Be Respectful • Be Responsible

Change grey to green – Royal Horticultural Society (RHS)


We are pleased to announce with have secured a £10,000 grant from the RHS to achieve the following.

1. Involve young people in the funded project change grey to green.
2. Increase biodiversity.
3. Make sustainable changes on the educational estate.
4. Increase young people’s green skills.

We are going to use the space behind the muga (unused carpark). The plan is to create a wild flower meadow, create several vegetable patches, allowing us to grow seasonal produce to be used in school. For example, when year 3’s create and make their own nutritional soups, create a butterfly garden and much more. We believe it will become an area of the school that the children will take pride in as it develops over the coming years. The area will also support children’s wellbeing and will provide opportunities for outdoor nurture sessions for all year groups, and will run alongside the development of our outdoor provisions – ultimately with the goal of becoming a Forest School.

We hope to have it up and running by September 2024.
