This means we work together as a team, like the crew of a ship or of a rowing boat.  We value everyone's contribution - children, staff, parents.  Come and join the adventure!

We all have a right to be safe and to be happy. 

We have a right to learn and a right to achieve.

The children returned to school to find they had traveled back in time to the 3rd September 1939. Their teachers were so much stricter and spoke very correctly.
