During their time at school, children in all three classes are able to experience a vast array of exciting opportunities that all add to the welcoming feel of this vibrant school.

Substantial forest school areas in Eaves woods, Trowbarrow and the church gardens mean children can spend curriculum time solving problems in a woodland setting, and the 150m track around the field enables them to improve their fitness and their mental health and well-being whilst running a mile per day.
