We strive to give our children an understanding of the world that God created; their place in it, their value to it and their responsibility for it.
Our core values are based in Christianity. They are: Friendship, Teamwork, Endurance, Wisdom, Trust, Service and Forgiveness.
We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils. We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
Thank you for visiting!

Thursday 21st November
Some of our Y6 children took part in an indoor pop lacrosse tournament at Bingham Leisure Centre.
Tuesday 3rd December was ‘Polar Express Day’. The intention was twofold: firstly to give the children a treat after they shone so well during the recent inspection; and secondly to develop their creative writing ability with a quality stimulus. The children were delighted to come to school in their nightwear. They were also thrilled to see their teachers dressed as either elves or waiters from the film. Mr Armitage relished the role of conductor and punched all the children’s tickets as they came into the hall to see the first part of the film. At break time they were all served hot chocolate and cookies.
At the end of the day all children were presented with their own sleigh bell as a memento.
The government has provided £8,300 worth of funding to our school to develop the ‘Olympic Legacy’ in schools.
This year we intend to spend this money introducing sports coaches into school.
We have allocated £2,500 to a local schools sports partnership who are providing coaches in multi-skills, dance and gymnastics. We have arranged for a sports coach in Lacrosse and multi-skills this term and next term we have dance and gymnastics coaches supporting the teaching.
We have allocated £2,532 to provide up to 30 1/2 days of cover for the PE specialist to work alongside teachers on games and athletics.
We have allocated up to £2,500 to provide extra swimming sessions for KS1 and KS2.
We have allocated £768 to provide resources including including a lacrosse coach and after school club.
The Pupil committee of the governing body will monitor the impact of this.
