  • is ambitious, has a good sense of humour and is approachable.

We can offer you:

  • happy, friendly children who are keen to learn.
  • a school with an exceptionally welcoming ethos and an outstanding sense of community which has been developed from our close partnerships with families, the parish and the wider community.
  • a dedicated, hardworking and committed team of staff.
  • a strong pastoral team keen and skilled in offering service, welcome and nurture to our school community.
  • strong support from committed and experienced governors.
  • a popular, over-subscribed, inclusive school.
