Inquiring Minds, Happy Memories is our school motto. Inspirational leaders work with an enthusiastic staff team to launch our 5 – 7 year olds into a lifelong love of learning. Walk into the school and you’ll find children purposefully engaged in a range of activities to lay firm foundations and encourage potential. Busy, busy, busy! And there’s also time for reflection and growing into thoughtful members of the community.

Parents are welcome as important partners in our shared mission. An energetic team of governors with different experience and expertise works with the leadership to ensure the school is steering a safe, sustainable and financially secure course towards continuous improvement and holds leaders to account. Our School shares an open, green site with Alderton Junior School and New Beginnings Day Nursery. We are members of the successful Epping Forest School Partnership Trust.
