We believe in the magic of learning and the balance between teacher planned activities as well as child initiated learning.


We work hard to ensure all members of staff have the highest expectations about  what children can achieve and make effective use of children's assessments, so we can plan precise activities that meet children's next steps in learning. We provide many opportunities for children to learn effectively in the well- resourced indoor and outdoor classrooms.
