About our school

Claygate Primary School, fondly known as CPS, is a two-form entry school located in a wonderful setting in the heart of Claygate.We are passionate aboute learning outside the classroom both within our extensive grounds and beyond. The children enjoy outstanding facilities including a 20m heated swimming pool. We are delighted to have our very own woodland area which boasts a large pond where children can explore wildlife as well as completing forest school inspired activities. Learning outside is important to us! We are avid gardeners and have both allotments and chickens!
 
Children reaching their potential is at the heart of all we do. We believe that our role is to provide children with a broad education in which their development in all areas is stimulated and nurtured. We emphasise the creative side of children's development, often through 'The Arts' exploring ways to develop a growth mindset and resilience which can then be applied to all learning. The children look forward to a range of class outings and trips to places of interest. We also have a full programme of visitors to the school including theatre groups, musicians and guest speakers. As children are motivated, excited and independent learners, standards across core subjects are high.
 
We provide many opportunities for social, moral, spiritual and cultural development. There is an extensive extra-curricular programme some of which take place in vertical groupings (mixed aged groupings) which further encourages a sense of community and collaboration. We work closely with a range of charities, and have raised thousands of pounds for charitable causes selected by the children.
