We believe students learn best in an environment which is emotionally and physically safe.
A child's emotional and physical wellbeing is paramount to achievement. Caring teachers who know their students well are the key to creating a safe and happy school.
High expectations for students behaviour are expressed daily in our school. Personal and social responsibilities are themes that carry through every programme.
We're here to help - when children do experience difficulty, we work as a team to put things right.
