Welcome to our village school from all Governors.  We are proud of our village school and the dedicated, caring and professional teaching staff.

The school aims to provide an excellent education for all of its pupils and is ever mindful of its obligations to provide support in order to fulfil the potential of all pupils within its varied curriculum, enabling them to enjoy learning.

The local community has developed strong links with the school over many years and the Friends of the School are actively engaged in yearly fundraising projects to help the school with equipment and visits to support topic work.

Parents are represented on our Governing body and we are always keen to hear and consider the views of the parents of all our pupils.

We sincerely hope that you enjoy visiting our school and look forward to meeting you in the future.
