At Ward Green we realise that starting school is an important step in your child’s life.  We aim to make your child’s stay with us as happy, enjoyable and successful as we possibly can.  We see the education of children as a team effort:  parents, head teacher, teachers, ancillary staff, governors, cleaning and care-taking staff, kitchen and dining room staff and our lollipop lady.  Each one of these links is as important as the others and we would like you as parents to feel part of that team (references to parents are taken to include other guardians legally responsible for the child).  We continually strive to improve all that we do. 

We have a shared ethos where everyone is valued, supported and respected. We provide children with a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment where the children receive high quality teaching and learning with an expectation that everyone achieves their full potential. To reach this aim we provide an exciting broad and balanced curriculum, providing life - long learning opportunities for all.

High quality teaching and learning.
Safe, secure and stimulating learning environment.
