Vision, Values, Ethos & Aims


Our small school is 'like a small mustard seed, which is smallest of all seeds on earth. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants'.   (Mark 4:30-32)





The parable of the mustard seed can be a metaphor for our children, who blossom during their time here ready for the next stage of their journey. Each child is nurtured, and enabled to flourish through our teaching and care.


We treat every child with the dignity and respect they deserve as children of God. Each child grows like a mustard seed and is supported and tended by our school community.


We hope that each child will grow spiritually during their time here; through worship and wisdom gained from teaching and learning, 'Growing & Learning Together'.


Our school values are important and enable us to live well together. They include; compassion, courage, friendship, truthfulness, wisdom and respect.  Alongside these core values we also embed and cherish; responsibility, respect and reverence, trust, justice, perseverance, thankfulness, humility, generosity, hope, forgiveness, creativity, peace and service into our collective worship.



To provide all our children with the best possible education promoting knowledge, independence and respect for others.  Our small school is a learning community for everyone.
