I feel we are kept updated regularly by staff. Staff are extremely approachable and hard working. It is a wonderful learning environment. I love all the outdoor areas provided. I.e. dipping pond, veggie patch, forest school etc.

Nurturing and caring staff.

Open door policy- immediately addresses areas of concern.

Great communication.

Excellent all round teaching, nurturing and confidence building.

Excellent environment.

Extremely nurturing.

Warm and welcoming with happy friendly staff.

Very impressed with Miss Barrow.

All of it.

My daughter has only been at the school for 3 days so it is difficult to comment on. She is however enjoying school has made friends and likes her teacher. Over all so far impressed with all.

The school encourages the children of all ages to mix together and they all look out for each other. Don’t see this in larger Primary Schools.

There is a loving, easy and welcoming environment.
