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.

Pupils re-create American Democracy.

A day before the United States decided who would be their new President, Years 4 and 6 pupils here gathered in the School Hall to hold their own election.

Mr Pinks explained the US election process using a Powerpoint presentation. Then candidates for each party were selected.  Each pupil represented one of the US states: they either had to have a 'primary' vote, or to announce the result of their 'caucus' discussion.

Votes were then cast for the Republican or Democratic Party.  To secure a win, the candidates needed 270 of the electoral votes to become President Elect.  It was very close - 260 votes for the Democrats and 275 votes for the Republicans.
