Our Vision

We will be a school which is both caring and nurturing, where everyone feels confident and valued and has the opportunity to experience God’s loving care.

We will have a learning environment where children are encouraged to be respectful, responsible and independent and are given the necessary skills to succeed in life.

We will encourage everyone to ‘go the extra mile’ and only accept their best.
