Welcome to our school

What can I tell you about our wonderful primary and nursery school?

It is true to say that we are truly unique. We are passionate about inclusion and diversity, and are proud to host a communication, interaction and resource base.

We are values led and have our own school parliament, where matters of great importance are discussed. We are deep thinkers and have recently been awarded Gold for our Philosophy for Children curriculum.

We are in the heart of the city and yet are blessed with lots of outside space, including our own forest school, four playgrounds, a large field and a multi-use games area which comprises two pitches and cricket nets.

We are creative, colourful and caring.  We are a community school with a family feel and have weekly coffee mornings for our parents and love hosting events such as International Evening, Book at Bedtime and our Open Evening in June.

We believe that every day is precious in education and it is our job to make sure that children excel to the best of their ability in their academic education. We are also dedicated to an holistic approach and make sure that our children’s emotional and social development is nurtured. To that end, we have a wonderful nurture team and a well-being room that all children can access.

Rising 3s can start their journey with us and from the beginning have access to a wide range of extra-curricular clubs, many focusing on art and sport. As the children go through their school journey, they may choose to join one of our many sporting clubs or join our rock group or orchestra – or both!

We also have a breakfast and after school club as we know how important wrap around care is for working parents.

Our mantra is ‘Live, Love, Learn and be Happy’ and the best way for you to get a true feel of this is to come and visit us where you will receive a very warm welcome.


Best wishes,

Julie Holland (Headteacher)
