Ethos Statement

Our Vision

That all our children develop into happy, confident and successful members of the global community and have a great understanding and respect for others and the world around them.

How do we do this?

Through high quality teaching and using our beautiful and unique rural environment to teach children lifelong skills, build lifelong memories yet extended the happiness and magic of childhood for the whole time that they are with us. By providing the children with a host of varied experiences including physical, emotional and spiritual ones which will nurture them and promote the feeling of family. Together we will provide a secure, stimulating and healthy environment in which we can bring out the best in everyone, in everything we do.

What is important to us?

That children:

  • Develop a sense of awe and wonder about the world around them.
  • Value and understand a range of religious, cultural and moral beliefs and develop a respect and interest in the views of others.
  • Develop lively, enquiring minds which constantly seek to investigate deeper
  • Are active members in the local community
  • Strive to be the best in all that they do and so succeed at challenging goals that they set    themselves.

Our school is small, our children are young, yet

“Large streams from little fountains flow Mighty oaks from tiny acorns grow.”

D. Everett. (1797)
