I am delighted that you have chosen to visit our school website. We are very proud of Claygate Primary; it is a very special place. We are a caring and welcoming school, where governors, parents, staff and children work together to ensure that every child’s journey throughout Claygate is filled with encouragement, challenges and successes. We offer a creative, stimulating and exciting curriculum which encourage all to develop a love of learning. Our last Ofsted report was in June 2016 which confirmed that Claygate is a good school with much to celebrate. We agree! We have introduced a new pupil leadership team to work alongside us as we continue to strive to make CPS the best we can be!
Our extensive grounds mean that we can offer excellent opportunities to participate in outdoor learning and sporting activities, which enhance the curriculum, including a full size swimming pool. Learning doesn't only happen in the classroom! Our central philosophy is to support children to make decisions, manage risks and take responsibility for themselves. Our newly introduced Claygate Charter is an enrichment programme which allows the children to experience a range of modules, all linked to pupil well-being in which they strive to gain bronze, silver and ultimately gold status by the end of Year 6! In essence, we aim to make sure that children are well-prepared for the next phase of their education, but more importantly, that they are well-prepared for life!
We are a busy, friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, but we would be very pleased to welcome you on a personal visit or tour, so you can see the children immersed in their learning, meet the staff and look around our beautiful setting to build up your own picture.
I look forward to meeting you.
