Join our school

Choosing the right Primary School for your child is a vitally important decision for every parent to make and we hope our site will help you decide if our small and friendly village school is the right choice for your family.

We are a happy and caring school where a love of learning is inspired in our children by a stimulating environment. Every child is valued and respected and encouraged to be an independent learner, and our children’s achievements are celebrated. Class sizes are small and led by a class teacher. We also have the support of teaching assistants across the school. All lessons are tailored to meet a range of abilities and learning styles and cater for any children with special educational needs or who have been identified as gifted and talented in a particular field.

Most of our pupils join the school from Reception class, the school year in which they turn 5, but we welcome children to join us at any other time.
