Number on Roll:
We continually stress the importance of honesty, trust, fairness and self-discipline, mutual respect and self-esteem. We endeavour to encourage and praise good behaviour and help all children to appreciate that this is the normal expectation. We believe that it is our responsibility to provide opportunities for all children to excel academically and socially. Our school is a community and we recognize that each individual is important and has a valuable contribution to make towards the quality of life enjoyed by the people within it.
