As a Church School we:
- Welcome all children from the local community and beyond who wish to attend a church school.
- Aim for high academic standards.
- Aim to challenge each pupil and inspire him or her to make the most of each opportunity presented.
- Build Christian values into our ethos and teaching.
- Aim to develop in our pupils a sympathetic understanding of the Christian faith together with a respect for other faiths and cultures.
- Promote mutual respect and care between all our members.
- Maintain strong links between school, home, church and the local community.
