Most important of all, children are happy at school, love their teachers and are proud of their achievements. We couldn't ask for more than that!' Parent questionnaire during Ofsted Inspection, 2017
Long term strategic vision
The governors of the school are responsible for setting its long term strategic direction and vision. They formulate a 5 year plan, based on the views of key stakeholders and recommendations from inspections. More information about this, and the annual objectives drawn from the 5 year plan can be found in the document below.
We are delighted to have 'Down the Woods' Forest school joining us in September 2021. Allowing our children to connect to the natural environment using our large pond area, playing field, wooded areas and Sherwood park wood.
Come rain or shine, the children will experience learning outside of the classroom and under the trees.
