The Henry Moore Primary School opened in September 2001.
Phase one was built to accommodate 210 children, with phase 2 taking the school to 420 pupils. Phase 2 was finished in October 2003.
It is a beautiful building with a computer suite/library, a group room and a food technology room.
The classrooms are built in pairs with a linking door, and ‘pods’ on the outside housing the toilets and cloakrooms.
The Year R classrooms have a secure ‘outside learning environment’ accessed via the classroom pod.
I hear and I forget
I see and I remember
I do and I understand

The Aims of our School
To provide a secure and caring environment in which the emotional, cultural, educational, physical, spiritual and social needs of each child can be met.
To promote a happy atmosphere in which children can develop to their fullest potential and in which their natural talents and gifts are recognised and nurtured.
To help children develop self confidence and self discipline and to have respect for themselves, their peers, their teachers and the wider community beyond the school.
'The child is a worker and producer ... Each
has a great and difficult task to perform:
to produce from within themselves, an adult.'
