We are an aspiring large village school, keen to reflect upon all aspects of school life to support a breadth of school improvement. Our aim for pupils is simple – to ensure that they achieve and exceed their potential and have a lot of fun along the way. We strive to ensure that every day is filled with happiness, laughter, support, encouragement, and progress.
We believe in providing a rich diet of experiences to bring learning to life and to provide the very best opportunities and experiences for our children, all 380 + of them, both individually and collectively. In line with government guidelines, we are strong advocates of a broad and balanced curriculum in every year group. We encourage our children to exercise their 'can do' attitude each day in all subjects, to ensure that they constantly reach for the stars. With amazing children, dedicated and compassionate staff and governors, a very proactive PTA and a very strong community, we are well placed for continued success.
One of our big projects in the last school year, alongside making progress in areas of school life, was to fundraise to build a new kitchen; this was to allow us to provide high-quality delicious meals in a space that is fit for purpose (and free up other space to positively impact on rich learning opportunities). Click here to watch our fundraising video. Thank you to everyone that starred in it and to Adam for filming and building it. Thank you also to Tom Percival from Northampton Radio for joining us on March 7th to help promote our fundraising efforts. You can listen in here - Broadcast 1, Broadcast 2, Broadcast 3 and Broadcast 4. Also, have a look at the photos on the gallery page (courtesy of our Digital Leaders).
With lots of help from our immediate and extended community (Garfield Weston, Deanshanger Parish Council, Wicken Parish Council, our PTA, crowdfunding, Fresh Start and school events), the first part of the project is almost complete. Phase 2 is fitting the kitchen out and we need further funds in order to be able to do this. If you are able to help us in any way, please make contact. We have received lots of positive feedback and questions about the kitchen project. If you would like to know more about this project and why it is important to us, click here.
Whilst there is a lot of information on this website and some great videos ( look out for the so that you don't miss them), it is no substitute for a school visit. Please make contact if you would like to find out more about our very special school or would like a paper copy of any information held on this website.
