Our School Vision

Our vision is to be the rural school of choice in the local area, where every child is inspired with a love of learning and is supported to become a confident and resilient lifelong learner. We aim to

  • provide a broad and varied curriculum with opportunities for all children to develop a wide range of skills and interests alongside achieving the best possible progress over their time at the school
  • to be a learning community where teachers, support staff and governors continue to learn in order to create strong leadership, outstanding practice and attain national recognition for the realisation of this vision.

The aim is to work towards achieving these strategic priorities over the next three years and to embed these aspects of the school’s work and character over five years.
