Reception Intake 2022/2023

Starting school is a key milestone for children and parents and finding the right school for your child is an important decision. 

If you visited our school and spoke to our staff during a school day, you would see that children are at the heart of all we do!  Our overall aim is for our children to leave us confident, secure and ready for their next steps out into the wider world. We achieve this by focusing on the whole-child, making sure that their well-being, social and emotional development are at the core of our provision, through our outstanding nurture and pastoral care. This is supported by a rich and exciting curriculum with an emphasis on the creative arts as well as key skills in English and maths, which allows all our children to achieve and feel successful.
