The Home of Flexi-schooling '
in a Nurturing School
C of E Academy
we serve both a local and increasingly wider community of pupils and parents.
Our academy is underpinned by our Christian beliefs and values,
especially the 'Fruit of the Spirit' as reflected in our school
song 'You'll go out with Joy'.
A key aspiration of our academy is Service before Self,
which encompasses clear
Community values and
Tolerance and acceptance of all.
We offer Primary education for children from age 3+ in our Pre-Reception class, through to
in Year Six.
Our teaching environment is split into three class groups. Each class is tailored to promote the best
possible delivery of learning, where every child
is given the opportunity to develop and exploit their full potential. Each
class utilises a fully qualified teacher, including our EYFS class. Our
teachers are also supported by two excellent teaching support staff.
If the opportunity presents, we would strongly recommend that you look at
our Parent Comment page, to
review their thoughts, or better still come and take a look around; you will
find that our surroundings are second to none and we make full use of them
throughout the year.
We believe that every stakeholder is important, and that together we all can learn from each other.
Key to this approach is our offer
If you are wondering what Flexi-schooling is, the easiest way
to describe it, is as a synergy between Elective Home Educators and
mainstream teaching - take a look at our
Flexi-Schooling page for more information.
We have become a leading exponent of Flexi-schooling in the 21st century and
we have been praised by Ofsted, DfE and numerous other dedicated educational
professionals from around the country and beyond.

leaving the conceptual stage, we haven't hit the tipping point yet, but
we are nearly there.

and from interested members in the Elective Home
Educator community, we ourselves are ready to make the class a reality from
Having secured provisional agreement on where we will hold the class.
