We value the strong relationship that exists between our school and the community and always welcome the opportunity to take part in village activities and to share ours.
Our Foundation Stage teacher regularly visits the local Pre-schools and the Montessori Nursery and welcomes their return visits. Contact numbers and details for these can be obtained from the school office.
