Rated Outstanding

00056We believe the Early Years of a child’s education are crucial to their future development, enjoyment and achievement.

We aim to provide high quality early learning through play for all children in a happy, fun, caring and nurturing environment.

Our youngest children find themselves in a vibrant, family atmosphere; whole school activities are adapted to include all the children from the youngest to the oldest.

We work closely with our families and have excellent communication links with our parents.
