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.

Concert showcases musical talent and potential

Just a small selection of the performers!

Our Christmas concert, held on 12 December, was a most enjoyable and successful evening.  Over 50 children took part, with each of Years 1-6 represented.  The School choir sang three songs with great enthusiasm, showing improving technique and tone.
 
Madame Borget, Mrs. Framingham and Mr. Framingham, the School's peripatetic music teachers give individual and group tuition in singing and on various instruments. Their hard work and dedication was clear for all to see in the performances of their pupils.  We are most grateful for their contribution to the musical development of our children.
 
In addition, many pupils take music lessons outside school and, of course, the School is keen to encourage them. Several of these children were able to showcase their talents at the concert and we hope they will wish to perform again in the future.
 
For some, it was their first public performance - but inspite of understandable nerves, they took their first steps as performers.  Others are now more experienced and confident, having taken part in our previous two concerts.  The progress made by both instrumentalists and singers was very noticeable: the standard keeps rising and is helping give music a higher profile at the School.
 
Music is often called the universal language because it reaches across age, gender and national backgrounds.  It develops an ability to express oneself in a different way and allows pupils who may find academic subjects challenging to thrive and be successful in a different way.  The School would like to thank parents and friends for attending the concert.  Please continue to support your children on their musical journey; music can give them a lifelong passion and maybe even lead to a career in the future.
