The well-maintained school building houses an Early Years Unit, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 catering for children between the ages of 2 and 11 years of age.
We are proud of our school and everybody works hard towards achieving our school motto 'Believe and Achieve'. Ours is a happy environment, strongly upholding the belief that children who feel safe, secure and valued will achieve their potential and make their contribution to an ever-changing, multi-cultural society.
