As a Church of England School, the principles of the Christian way of life are implicit in all we do. Collective Worship is very much a part of school life and takes place every day. Most days, this takes place in the school hall and sometimes in their own class. On Fridays, the whole school joins together for a special celebration worship where children’s achievement is recognised. Each week our classes take turn to share their work and parents are invited into their classroom after the assembly.

Throughout the week pupils will have a variety of additional activities and lessons such as swimming, Forest school and PE, details will be found on our newsletter. Pupils must therefore ensure they have PE kits in school at all times.

We also extend the day and enrich the curriculum by offering afterschool clubs run by staff and outside providers. Details can be found on our newsletter.

Classes are taught for most of the week by their teacher. However, teachers may swap classes on occasion or other teachers may cover at certain times over the school week. This is to maximise strengths and to provide teachers with Planning, Preparation and Assessment time, known as PPA (this is statutory).
