Who's Who

“Warm and friendly teachers who get to know each child on an individual level.  Your staff are such a credit to the school.”

“The staff always look happy and I feel that is what motivates the children.  They push the children but in a fun way.”

“I feel the Head Teacher and staff take on board and listen to the thoughts and concerns of the parents.”

Parents' Questionnaire comments, Autumn 2022.
