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.

A special visitor tells her story

Teresa (Year 6) and her Grandma
On Monday 18 November Year 6 had a very interesting visitor. Year 6 are studying about life for children during the Second World War, so one of our grandparents came in to talk to them about life in Poland during the war.  She is an astounding 92 years old, so she was only 18 when war was declared.
 
She was able to tell Year 6 about her experiences during the war years, when she was sent to the borders of Poland and Germany, as a servant in a German-run house.  All of her talk was spoken in Polish and then translated by her grand-daughter and others in the class.  She told about having to use blackouts for the lights in the windows, but she didn't experience rationing as she ate the same as the family she was working for.  All the pupils were able to ask a question and they really enjoyed the talk.
