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.

The Wiggly Wild Show comes to School

Cairis Hickey brought the Wiggly Wild Show to visit the School, as part of our Science Week.  An assembly was held to introduce all the creatures, the countries they came from, the habitats they live in and the types of food they eat.
We met Rocco a bearded dragon from Australia; Princess Jasmine, a garter snake from California; Wallis the hermit land crab, also from California; and many others.  We learnt lots of fascinating facts - for example, hermit crabs carry a bit of sea water in their shells to help them breathe.
Apparently every eight seconds a new mini beast is discovered around the world.  If we explore our surroundings closely we might discover a new one!
Children who answered questions correctly were given the 'pleasure' of holding the creatures.
Each class was then able to visit the wiggly wild creatures, in the hall, to have a closer look at them and learn in depth information about them such as giant snails eat by licking, they have rough tongues and are herbivores.
Thank you to Mr. Bowes for organising our Science Week.
