The teachers are well supported by Teaching Assistants who provide classroom support in literacy and mathematics, intervention programmes for specific groups and a wide range of other activities. We also benefit from guitar and drum lessons from peripatetic teachers, woodwind tuition for Year 4 by a Dorset Music Service teacher, and gymnastics teaching at Bridport Leisure Centre.
Parents and Governors are closely involved in the life of the school and voluntary helpers assist with many activities. We are a happy community with a friendly, informal atmosphere. Great emphasis is placed on kindness and understanding, co-operation between adults and children, older people looking after younger people, and consideration for others.
