We all want to be happy, but sometimes trying to find happiness can be a struggle. Often times we search for it in all the wrong places or ways, when the answer is much simpler- God. "Happy are the people whose God is the Lord" Psalm 144:15. The Bible guides us to happiness through God's Word.

Psalm 37:4


Our Prayer Spaces give our children the chance to worship both independently and together. A visitor commented that the atmosphere of joy and happiness was highly evident across the space. Another parent said "my daughter and my son age  loved visiting the prayer spaces. Each station posed a question or something to ponder while doing the activity. They especially likes bouncing in the trampoline while shouting about things that made them happy. It was a lovely experience to share with them both 


Our House Cup winners were Green House. The children had a lovely day of treats and their happiness was complete when the ice-cream van arrived.

We were very lucky to be visited by the cast of Riverdance. The fast paced Irish music made us happy enough to tap our toes to the beat. KS2 were even invited to take part in some music and dance workshops.

Our school is often filled with the sound of children singing. It is very simple really, singing makes us happy.
