What our parents say about us

Every year, we ask our parents to complete a survey to tell us what they think about the school. They have an opportunity in the questionnaire to tell us what they think our strengths are. Here are some of their comments in the most recent survey in March 2016...


“A calm and structured approach.  A good ethos which rubs off on the children.”


“Atmosphere very positive, open and friendly.  Staff always approachable and genuine.  This is a very happy school where children want to learn.”
