We are a small village school with a warm, caring and inclusive ethos. Our aim is to ‘Create a School for the Whole Community’
We aim to prepare all our children for an ever-changing technological world and with this in mind we integrate ICT into lessons where possible. We are fortunate to have touch screen interactive whiteboards in our classrooms to enhance learning and activities. Alongside these we have chromebooks and ipads, which children use regularly as part of their learning. Our children develop their computing skills writing algorithms and debugging programs using equipment such as Beebots in the real world and Scratch, online. While exploring technology on a range of devices we teach all our children about how to stay safe online through our E-safety work.
A strength of our school is the wide range of extra curricular activities that we offer. These include: art, sewing, dance, homework, outdoor adventures, gardening, creative writing, yoga, football, athletics, netball, tag rugby, tennis, hockey, Eco team and school council.
We believe that first hand experiences engage and excite children about their learning and we aim to enhance activities in the classroom with visits off site and with visitors coming into school. These opportunities have included visits to Runways End residential centre, Marwell Zoo, Titchfield Haven, Butser Hill, the Planetarium, Southampton Art Gallery and more.
In addition to this, we aim to provide an engaging curriculum which gives children the opportunity to learn through experiences both in classrooms and outside in our learning garden.
