About Us


It is the fundamental right of all children to be safe and our school fully recognises the contribution it can make to protect children and support pupils in school.  Our aim is to safeguard and promote our pupils’ welfare, safety and health by fostering an honest, open, caring and supportive climate.  The pupils’ welfare is of paramount importance.
