An introduction to the school
The School was built in 1861 and has had a number of recent additions. Within the school grounds there are attractive wooden buildings incorporating the FLO and headteacher’s office and two modern air conditioned classrooms. In the main building there are staff facilities, storage room, three other well-equipped classrooms and a multi purpose hall. It also houses an extensive library, office, store rooms and other teaching areas. There are ample grounds with a large playground area with apparatus, garden and wildlife areas.
Recent years have seen a significant increase in the school roll. Much work has gone into improving the school grounds which now include a separate play/outdoor tuition area for our youngest pupils.
The school is accessible for wheel chair users with ramps to the external classrooms and even a lift for access to our school field. Our school also boasts a modern care suite with lifting equipment, so we are able cater for most needs.
The classes are organised into four mixed ability groups with the children divided according to age.
In addition we have a special nurture and behaviour unit which is self contained and comprises of a number of attractive wooden classrooms and nurture rooms. Please see the relevant section on this website for more information.
The class teachers are responsible for delivering the curriculum each day to the children in their class groups. Special Needs children work within the class framework and are sometimes withdrawn for additional support. Much thought is given to whole school planning to satisfy the demands of the new National Curriculum.
The School and the Community
As a thriving primary school situated in pleasant rural surroundings, we have much to offer our pupils. We have considerable expertise amongst our staff with all the children benefiting from their varied enthusiasms and interests. We seek to foster a caring partnership between home, school and the community.
On various occasions during the year, parents and friends are invited to attend concerts, services, and open days etc., which are presented by the children. Each Christmas the children entertain the Senior Citizens and after the Harvest Festival Service produce is donated to our local food bank. We send contributions to the parish magazine and through this publication and the friendly neighbours newsletters we regularly inform the villagers of our forthcoming events.
