  • develop positive attitudes and concerns for the environment   
  • offer a broad based curriculum in order to facilitate the acquisition of knowledge & individual enjoyment in learning now and in the future
  • foster the close relationship between the school, pupils` homes and the local community

Our aims are displayed around the school:
