Headteacher's Message

Welcome to our new school website, which I hope will give you an insight into the life and educational opportunities on offer at Claines CE Primary.


At Claines, our pupils begin a learning journey that will continue throughout their lives. In an ever changing world, we aim to equip all children with the skills, knowledge and understanding they will need for their futures and instill a love of learning that will always grow inside them. Christian values underpin all that we do and consequently there is a very caring and respectful ethos ever present in our school.


We believe that if something is worth doing, then it's worth doing well. We therefore aim to provide the best possible education for your child, by delivering a broad and enriched curriculum that is tailored for all. We are a busy and vibrant school with high expectations and aspirations for all.


We also place great value on establishing a genuine partnership between home and school. Shared goals, encouragement and support, from both home and school, lay a firm foundation for our pupil's learning and well being.


If you are a prospective parent, please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a visit, so that you can experience first hand everything that the school has to offer.

Mr Simon Gent
