In addition to our exciting and stimulating curriculum, we also provide other opportunities to enhance the children’s learning where ever possible. Throughout the year, we organise themed days/weeks and whole school events such as R.E Day, D.T Day, May Day, challenge days etc. to further develop the opportunities we give our pupils.
Parents are often invited into school to share and celebrate the achievements of the children through assemblies or exhibitions. We also organise visitors to come into the school to help bring learning to life. In addition, we invest in specialist educational providers such as Music Services, ICT based companies and specialist sports coaches. Excellent partnerships with our local schools also help us to further the experiences of our pupils.

The edible garden was funded set up and built last year and was overseen by Mrs Tomkinson and Mrs Townsend and the Nurture children. Parents kindly donated plants and equipment such as wheelbarrows. We had some fab produce at the end of last season which we sold of made into soups and sold. This week we have support from Grow to School coming in to work alongside Year 5/6 preparing the beds for sowing seeds and plants for this year. Watch this space for our produce.
