The school aims to provide an atmosphere of sincere respect and friendship on the understanding that all humans are uniquely created. Our Christian faith is not simply an added extra: it is integrated into the whole life of the school and all aspects of the curriculum. It is conveyed in the values and attitudes in which our school is structured.
The children are taught good manners and are expected to be courteous and polite. They are taught to share . They are helped to realise that each individual is very precious in the eyes of God. Our Mission Statement complements and underpins all we do. (See link to the right of this page.)
