Our Vision

Our School Vision is taken directly from the words of Jesus in the Bible - John 10.10. Jesus tells his disciples that he has come that all people 'might have life and have it to the full'. What a wonderful promise - that we can all enjoy more and better life than we ever dreamed of!

Our vision then takes these words and applies it to all who are connected with our school - children (past, present and future) families, staff, governors and the wider community.

Our Community Say…

  • “What brilliant news about reaching Opal Platinum Status! I am so thrilled that my boys go to a school that values free play and the short period of life you have to be a child. The creativity and curiosity that Opal brings into their daily life is certainly going to be an asset in the future.”
  • “The platinum award is a thoroughly deserved recognition of a seismic cultural shift in the way we value and structure our children's play.
  • OPAL supports our school vision wonderfully and makes a huge and tangible difference to the richness of our pupils' time at school.”
