We believe that every child is:
In our school’s home-school agreement we pledge to provide a safe, secure and caring environment in which all children are encouraged to work hard and give of their best.

From our first encounters with a child and their family, we strive to build relationships of Christian love, trust, respect and honesty.

Our three school rules underpin everything we do in the Early Years setting:
Kind hands, kind feet and kind words are used as a simple translation of these rules on a daily basis.
