We have renewed our Outstanding grade by OFSTED in June 2015. We consist of a team of qualified staff members who have a strong and caring ethos that puts the children at the centre of everything they do [1].

We actively encourage all children and families to join our group and we have an Equal Opportunities Coordinator who ensures that each child is treated individually according to their needs, and Children learning as an additional language are exceptionally well supported [1]. All children are supported equally inclusive of their Special Needs, English as an additional language, Speech and Language, enabling them to develop and explore their curiosity for learning.
