Our School Website

Welcome to our school and website. We have included lots of useful information about the school, the classes, the curriculum and the many exciting things that we do at school. You will also see photographs of events and learning experiences that the children take part in.

Our curriculum provides a broad range of opportunities. Children learn through themed topics, in which staff plan a variety of first hand experiences and use creative and imaginative teaching to make learning exciting and memorable.

Our children are amazing. They are polite, respectful and welcoming, and we are proud of their achievements. The staff work incredibly hard to foster positive relationships with children, parents, visitors, the community and the parish. We can achieve great things by working together as a team. We are proud to be a church school and enjoy a verypositive and supportive relationship with Derby Diocese.

We hope you enjoy looking at our website and find it useful. If you can not find the information you are looking for, please contact the school directly where someone will be happy to help.

Thank you for visiting.
