We are a friendly inclusive school, committed to promoting the well-being of every child in our care, enabling each to achieve their full potential.
Our school community, consisting of staff, governors, parents, carers, members of the local churches and community, work closely together. The result is a dedicated, supportive and successful team.
The school is part of a Christian community in which Christian values are taught and practised. Diocesan members and local clergy are regular visitors, taking weekly assemblies as part of our regular cycle, and inviting us to Church as a school on different occasions throughout the year. Everyone is welcome to join us at these special services. We follow the Values For Life programme.
We were very proud to be awarded a Gold Artsmark by the Arts Council England in 2012, the only school in Suffolk to achieve this on 3 consecutive occasions. This recognises the excellent Arts provision at our school, where children enjoy every opportunity to participate in a vibrant curriculum. It is the highest standard awarded by the Arts Council.
Our school is well resourced and has excellent facilities. We have updated our IT provision and the pupils enjoy using the laptops and iPads. Wrens have a superb outdoor area, which is well equipped with climbing frame, playhouse, large sandpit, ride-on vehicles etc. We have a large playing field with specific areas for leisure, sports and a quiet area. We have a fabulous school garden in which vegetables and flowers are grown by the pupils.
