We are a Church of England Stand-Alone Academy and all that we do in this school is based on Christian values and Christian ethos, whilst ensuring that a tolerance and welcoming acceptance of all faiths or none is clearly articulated. Children are encouraged to form their own philosophy of life and to consider their own responses to ultimate questions. Daily worship and time for reflection is central to our school day – a time when the whole school can come together for some quiet time, an opportunity to reflect on the values of our school and how we live them out in each day.
Academic achievement at the school is outstanding as a result of our creative and engaging curriculum, experienced and inspirational teachers, and supportive families and governors.
Behaviour at the school is excellent and children show great caring towards each other and to the wider community.
Safeguarding of children is an absolute priority in our school with all staff trained to notice, report and support any instances of concern.
Our net capacity is 150 children in 5 classrooms and we are usually full to capacity or very nearly so. We have 7 qualified teachers on the staff, a High Level Teaching Assistant, another 5 Teaching Assistants, 5 Midday Supervisors (Dinner Ladies) and two Admin staff.
We converted to Academy Status in September 2011 so that we have more control over our curriculum and more independence to provide the very best education possible for our children. We belong to the family of schools in Salisbury Diocese and have formed a formal collaboration with four local primary schools, the Emmanuel Collaboration, to ensure the best possible provision for our children.
