Over the next two years, we shall be focusing on three key areas within our School Development Plan which will support us in bringing our vision to life. The three key areas are:

Building on Success

Developing pupils’ self-awareness, enhancing their well-being and enabling them to better understand themselves as individuals, their relationships with others and their impact on and place within the wider world.

Extended School Provision
