This is a nurturing environment where children, staff, parents and governors know each other and share a common understanding of the School’s purpose – to ‘aim high’ and through shared understanding of Gospel values, ensure that the potential of every child is fully achieved. Our children are happy, sociable, well-behaved and value our diversity, which enriches everything we do. We are recognised as ‘outstanding’ by the local authority and are confident this will be endorsed at our next Ofsted inspection.

'Heroes who Inspire'

Year 6 children have started their 'Knightly Virtues' project ‘Heroes Who Inspire’, linking the School with Birmingham University.  They will study ‘child friendly’ versions of some of the world’s best literature, including 'Don Quixote' (by Miguel de Cervantes) and Shakespeare's 'The Merchant of Venice'.
Rosa Parks, US civil rights activist (b.1913, d.2005)
They begin however with part of Rosa Parks' autobiography, making a link with Black History Month and also the current literacy theme of biographies in Year 6.  Of course the Knightly Virtues of humility, honesty, love, service, courage, justice, self-discipline, and gratitude are also those of our School, through our mission to teach the Gospel values to all children.  If you would like to know more about this theme please click here.
