Head teacher's Statement
We believe that every child regardless of their background or characteristics should be welcomed, enabled to learn effectively and helped to take part in all aspects of school life in a meaningful way.
We hope this website aims to give you a flavour of what our school is like, as well as providing regular updated information for parents, pupils and parents considering applying for a place.
That said, there is no substitute to visiting us to get a real feel for the community we have created. Children learn best when they are cared for and feel valued and special. We are always proud to show visitors around our school because we know there will be purposeful learning and a warm feel that makes this a special place to be.
Our school was originally founded in 1836 to provide education within a Christian context for the children of the village and surrounding farm cottages. Today, we serve the local community and beyond for parents who wish to educate their children in a small popular thriving village school.
We are a strong advocate of small Church of England schools not only for the type of education and experience they provide, but also to how they can contribute to the education system as a whole.
We developed a very strong reputation for inclusion and our work with children with Special Education Needs whilst stretching our higher performing children and consistently achieving well above national average results for reading, writing and mathematics.
It's quite simple really. People.
We are proud of our children and the people who work with here because they care, they are dedicated and they go that extra mile to make this a loving, caring place to learn.
‘The Christian vision and leadership of the headteacher, supported by dedicated governors and
hardworking and committed staff, ensures the distinctive Christian character of this school
permeates all policy and practice’.

We have a proud local reputation for inclusion and diversity and meeting the needs of all our learners and have established our own enhanced provision setting for children with additional and life-long learning needs.
We value a rich and varied school curriculum including promoting children's personal, social, moral, spiritual and cultural development as well as academic achievement
