We are a small, village school with a strong family atmosphere, catering for children aged 4 – 7 years with approximately forty children on roll. We provide a high standard of education where children enjoy a friendly and caring school life. Our school provides a stimulating environment in which all children can become well motivated, independent learners.

The children learn to take responsibility for themselves and to develop care and respect for their community. They participate in small learning groups, enabling both learning difficulties and high attainment to be provided for. We have very strong links with our village community and make extensive use of our local environment.

We hope you find our website of interest. Do contact us if you would like any further information about our school.
