We have strong links with the church of All Saints in the village. We are part of The Dever Valley Federation along with Micheldever C of E Primary School.
We are a successful Church of England (Controlled) Primary School with around a hundred children, organised over four mixed-age classes. This helps to give our school the warm, friendly, family-feel that our families value. We know our children extremely well and treat them with respect as unique individuals. Children do very well here and are appropriately supported and challenged, through high quality teaching, so that they can make good progress. As a small school, we are able to provide our children with a caring and nurturing environment with a strong Christian ethos.Our Christian values of Love, Trust and Hope are intrinsic to daily life in our school. These values are closely linked to the school motto of ‘Learn, Care, Share and Achieve’ and this makes clear our commitment to high quality learning and attainment, supported by our Vision & Values Statement.
Please do get in contact if you would like to know more about us or to enquire about places available for school-aged children between the ages of 4 and 11.

When your child attends Cygnets, they are welcomed by a small and friendly team of enthusiastic staff, who look forward to helping and encouraging your child in a wide variety of activities, which are designed to promote learning through play.
We welcome visits from parents/carers and should you wish to come along and join a session, our Chair, Lizzie Frost, will be happy to arrange this in advance. We recommend that you visit for at least one session before your child’s start date.

The Parish Council supports the recycling activities of Test Valley Borough Council and Hampshire County Council, who collect and dispose of waste and recyclable material.
The parish supports recycling activities in two main ways:
- using the “twin bin” waste collection scheme at each property
- using the parish recycling centre
Additional recycling activities are supported at other waste collection points throughout the borough.
The government has set a target for local authorities to recycle at least 25% of waste by the end of 2000. By the end of October 2000 Test Valley Borough Council had recycled 24% of waste and was well on the way to achieving the target.
Collection and disposal
Waste and recyclable material is collected from domestic properties weekly, and from the parish recycling centre by Test Valley Borough Council as required – typically weekly, although seasonal variations are taken into account.
The collected material is processed by Hampshire County Council, who separate it and resell whatever is possible.
Twin bin refuse and recycling
Household waste is collected using a “twin-bin” approach:
- one bin for general waste and
- one bin for recyclable waster – paper, plastic, and metal
In addition there is a green garden waste collection servicewhich is available for an additional fee of £20.00 per annum.
The general waste is collected each week, and the recyclable waste is collected approximately every altyernate week – according to a published schedule.
Parish recycling centre
The recycling centre in the parish collects paper, plastic, tins, and glass (separated into white, green, and brown glass).
