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.

SEND and the School's Inclusive Learning Statement

The School believes that all children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) must be supported and provided for, with strategies promoting each individual’s development in a positive atmosphere.
Alongside quality first teaching and a broad and rich curriculum offer, we may provide additional and different provision in order to support children with SEND.  Our Inclusion Manager oversees the assessment and support of all school-based interventions, manages the Teaching Assistants and coordinates liaison with external professionals, ensuring appropriate support and interventions are implemented and reviewed.
All interventions and provision provided are personalised in order to ensure highly differentiated curriculum support.  Alongside this, we also use rigorous systems to monitor pupil progress, aid academic and personal achievement and remove any barriers to learning.  Our staff follow tailored and universal continuous professional development programmes, in order to aid a structured whole-school approach to learning.
We have also run a wellbeing programme for staff which enables  us to develop and sustain a healthy and supportive working environment for both staff and children to work and learn in.
In order to foster a culture of lifelong learning, curiosity and independent living skills in all of our learners we may run, alongside our whole-school curriculum, additional and different support for children with SEND, details of which you can read in the School's Inclusive Learning Statement here.
