Our school offers a friendly and family-orientated learning environment which enables children to develop to their full potential. Play is the principal means of learning in early childhood so we provide opportunities to explore and experiment through challenging activities. We aim to give children the best advantage in learning early literacy, mathematical concepts, scientific and technological ideas. Creative, imaginative and musical activities form an important part of their daily experiences. Through staff expertise, guidance and praise, children are encouraged to develop self-esteem, confidence and independence.
Our teachers have:
high expectations of the children and themselves
a passion for raising standards and attainment
an engaging teaching style which enthuses and motivates children to learn
experience of working well as part of a team
a commitment to improving and developing their own practice
