Out of our small staff, five have been with us for the past eleven years and two have been with us for eight years. We try to promote from within, where possible to reward loyalty and maintain standards, stability and staff morale.
The Lawson Family all work in the school and our four Governors are family and friends. Expect happy, successful children in small classes with good behaviour and a desire to learn.
