To be the best we can be
Our vision is to give children
the knowledge and skills
to be successful by
being the best they can be.
Led by Christ, we follow in Jesus’ footsteps, seeking to be
the best we can be.
We learn and grow, we are ready to learn and aim for success.
Together in God’s family, we love and respect
everyone we meet
here at school.
Children's Health and Well-Being
We are proud to hold Healthy School Status at Gold level and we aim to provide children with the skills and knowledge they need to make good choices for long-term healthy lifestyles.
We maintain and encourage healthy eating habits, participating in the Healthy School Standards. The document 'Food in School' details our policy for school lunches, snacks in school and breakfast club.
Click here to read the NEW school lunch menu (February 2023). We will trial this for a few weeks and get the children's feedback before making any necessary changes.
We encourage children to take ownership of their own mental health and to recognise and manage their emotions through regular brain breaks and practice of relaxation techniques.
Several staff have received training in supporting children who are experiencing difficulties affecting their emotional well being. Support is offered in school over a six-week block, which can focus on a range of issues. If you think your child would benefit from this support please speak to the SENCo, Miss Morrison. More information can be found here: ELSA information for parents
Parents and children who would like support with any issues relating to mental health and well being can make a referral to these local groups, with whom we work:
Alternatively, please speak to Miss Browne or Miss McAlea,
the mental health leads in the school.

Physical activity and well-being
We have a school 'Physical Activity and School Travel Plan' in place. We participate in the local initiatives to reduce traffic congestion by encouraging active methods of getting to and from school, led by the Junior Road Safety Officers.
All children receive 2 hours of structured physical activity during the school week. Additional extra-curricular activities are also available.
We work closely with the Health services provided by the local commissioning group. A school nurse regularly visits to carry out health checks and is available to support parents if needed.
