Meet the Staff

At the heart of everything we do to make our school such a success is the community and the people who work to make this: children, staff, parents and governors.

We have a wonderful team of staff, who are committed to the vision, success and progress of the school and have different specialisms to ensure the best possible service for our children, parents and local community

We are very fortunate to have a highly qualified, experienced and talented staff able to deliver all aspects of the primary curriculum

All of our teaching assistants receive a high level of ongoing training and support and work as part of a team.

Pupils, parents and staff come together via regular parent consultations they continue to make a significant contribution to our ongoing development. Staff, parents, governors and pupils are rightly proud of our achievements. To find out more about our school, to receive our prospectus and to arrange a time to visit the school please contact the school office. Once you meet our staff and pupils, you will not be disappointed.

Our staff are committed to developing the whole child through a variety of teaching and learning opportunities and clearly defined boundaries of acceptable behaviour, encouraging each child to aspire to achieve his or her full potential and beyond.
