All the staff are CRB checked and are caring and committed to the welfare and care of children. They understand the importance of children being happy and confident in their surroundings. The Ken Hogan Pavilion has a bright airy room with floor to ceiling windows at both ends of the room allowing children to look out over the playing fields and surrounding countryside. The room is divided into areas to promote different learning opportunities. It has two outdoor learning areas where children benefit hugely from a variety of activities including, gardening, wood work, large
