Welcome to our school
We are passionately committed to providing a high quality education for the children in our care so that every child does well here. As an inclusive school we aim to guide and support children so that they achieve their very best educationally, socially and physically in an environment that puts children’s needs at the top of the agenda and where parents feel confident that their children are safe and well cared for during their time with us.

This week is multicultural week where the children will learn about other cultures through a variety of activities. The learning activities will include music, literacy, art and French. The children will hear a violin concert, be taking part in a number of French activities with Madame Annis and taking part in a drumming workshop on Thursday. Literacy this week will be based on texts from a variety of cultures and on Friday our Reception classes will walk to Aboyne Lodge School to participate in drama/reading workshops with the children from their Reception class.
We are to have an Ofsted inspection 26-27th February 2014, a copy of the letter to notify parents together with a leaflet and guide for parents is available on the Ofsted page of this website which you can navigate to from the home page via the ’Office’ tab.
Our Eco Week has begun with a variety of activities for the children on reducing waste, recycling and re-using. Our assemblies this week are also based on the eco theme and on Thursday we will welcome the Waste Awareness Officer from St. Albans Council who will be talking to the children about what they can do to play their part. We look forward to seeing the musical instruments that the children have been making and will be using them to accompany our singing.
