Children benefit greatly from being in walking distance from the beach, harbour and woods.  And as a result, my teachers are able to create motivating and encouraging lessons in a range of different settings. There is a positive ethos across the whole authority which encourages staff to share ideas and resources to support colleagues” – Lisa, Head Teacher
