The Infant School is a safe, secure and happy environment where diversity is celebrated and where, as one student put it, "We look after one another".
Although teaching and learning is taken very seriously indeed, there is no doubt that a sense of humour is a vital component of the Infant School's ethos. Children are very much treated as individuals with their own strengths, weaknesses and quirks. Teachers are approachable and genuinely interested in children. It would be rare to see any teacher or assistant crossing the playground at break time without stopping for an informal chat with a group of children.
By the time they move up to the Junior School children are secure in themselves as individuals, enthusiastic collaboration and open communication. Visitors to the school often comment that children come across as sociable, unspoiled and in some ways refreshingly unsophisticated.
