We offer children an outstanding curriculum and aim to enable every child to reach their full potential within a fully inclusive environment.

We hope you find our website informative. We welcome visits from any prospective parents and children.

A message from Miss Roe to 3R -
To my wonderful 3R,

I just received your video via Mrs Robinson this morning and it has brought the biggest smile to my face (and even a little tear)! It was so lovely to read your message and see all of the exciting things you’ve been up to.

If you look closely, you can see how long the snake is!!! Can we get him all the way to the Front Entrance during half term?
