Year 1 find out about Mary Anning
Year 1 have been enjoying their Autumn1 topic ‘Animal Antics’. They have learned about lots of different groups of animals and thought about where in the world they live. The class wanted to know who first found out about all these animals: The bbc primary history website taught us lots about Mary Anning – a fossil hunter from Lyme Regis who discovered a very large dinosaur fossil which can now be seen at The Natural History Museum in London. They have also learned a little about three famous naturalists: Charles Darwin, Sir Richard Attenborough and Steve Backshall, who have each taught us lots about the animals that live on our planet.

Mission Statement:

The relationship between the school, parents, pupils, governors and the community is vitally important. In September 2010 all these groups joined together to develop the mission statement for the school as it moved on into its next phase – to become outstanding. The mission statement encapsulates all these ideas and ambitions for the school.

As a church school our ethos reflects Christian moral values which build positive partnerships with families, local and global communities.

We aim to:

  • Provide an outstanding education for all pupils
  • Develop everybody’s unique personality, abilities and talents through creative learning experiences
  • Encourage confidence, independence and self-belief so that all individuals can reach their maximum potential
  • Embed within the school a culture of respect and care for each other and themselves
  • Instil a lifelong love of learning with the ability and desire to make God’s world a better place
