'Love One Another As I Have Loved You' (John 15:12)

* Squirrels Class swimming lesson this Tuesday *

We believe that maths is essential for everyday life and understanding the world.  We teach a well organised, mathematically rich engaging curriculum.  We believe that every adult should have a good basic knowledge of arithmetic and understand and work with numbers.  We subscribe every child to ‘Mathletics’ to encourage families to engage in practising mental maths skills at home alongside their child.

NSPCC Number day
