Welcome from the Headteacher, Mrs Jan Steel

We offer a creative, inspiring and motivating curriculum which excites and enthuses learners, in conjunction with a wide range of extra-curricular and after-school opportunities that complement our work in the classroom.

Mollie's Story

Meet Mollie, aged 7, a Key Stage 2 pupil from our school who has really struggled with literacy for a couple of years, resulting in a lack of all-round confidence and anxiety about going to school.

Mollie's story shows how LEGO® Education StoryStarter helped to make a real difference both to her literacy learning and her enjoyment of school. We're proud of Mollie and her fantastic story.

Harvest Festival

It was fantastic to see so many parents and relatives supporting our Harvest Festival this week. Thank you so much for your support towards this and also for your kind donations to the Harvest boxes. These will be taken to St Matthew’s Food bank and will be distributed amongst the local community. The children enjoyed sharing different performances in the Harvest Service at the church. We heard songs sung by many year groups, poems were performed, stories were retold and acted out and a lot of important messages were communicated through each of these, as well as having a fun afternoon. Finally, thank you for contributing to the collection to support the Shonda Project. This money goes towards St. John’s First Baptist School in Likoni, Kenya.
