We want our teachers to concentrate on what they do best - teach. We have clear, consistent behaviour systems and every teacher has their own classroom. Our teachers plan the curriculum together allowing them to share expertise as well as the workload. This enables our teachers to retain autonomy in planning to meet the needs of their classes thereby developing a creative approach to teaching and learning. Our pupils will strike you with their confidence, respectful and caring matter. Together teaching and support staff form part of a vibrant, inclusive team which is helping to change our pupils’ lives.
