Welcome to Cale Green Primary School
‘The treasure in your school is the strong sense of community. At your school, community cohesion is not an initiative from a past era but a living reality. It motivates everyone. As one pupil told me, ‘even though we are all different we are treated the same. We are all special and unique.’ Pupils who come to this school are given the skills and confidence they need to be positive contributors to life and society in Britain today’ . Ofsted January 2017
Dear Parents / Carers,
On behalf of everyone at Cale Green may I extend the warmest of welcomes to you and your child!
Cale Green is a vibrant, truly comprehensive school with children from a wide range of different backgrounds, reflecting the diverse community found in the Cale Green and Davenport area. We are a busy but friendly with lots going on. This website, along with regular emails and Twitter messages aims to give you a taster of the school as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.
At Cale Green we believe that a strong partnership between home and school is the foundation for a successful education. Children need to feel secure and happy in order to learn, therefore it is vital that good relationships between home and school are maintained.
We have high standards and we always ask the children to ‘do their best’ whether it is in lessons or by trying to be the best person and friend that they can be. We also stress the importance of politeness and good manners.
We know that every child who comes to Cale Green has something unique and valuable to contribute and our role is to encourage each child to fulfil their potential by becoming actively involved in all aspects of school life.
We believe that children learn best from first-hand experience and we have developed a very wide range of ‘enrichment’ and ‘engagement’ activities, from visits to museums and galleries, residential activity holidays and visitors into school. We want to create a life-long love of learning that isn’t just restricted to school!
Cale Green is an ‘Extended School’ and we run daily Breakfast and After-School Clubs. We also hold a range of activities for parents and families including art and craft sessions, ESOL classes and weekly ‘Baby and Toddler’ and ‘Mini-Movers’ pre-school groups.
Here at Cale Green we have a hugely talented and committed team of staff to ensure that our curriculum, teaching and learning and care and support meets the different needs of every young person.
We aim to provide a secure, happy and stimulating learning environment where everyone is valued and encouraged to do their best at all times to reach their full potential. We provide a respectful and supportive environment where children have opportunities to make good choices which will develop their skills for lifelong learning.
The Staff, Governors, Parents and Pupils are very proud of Cale Green Primary and as you look around at our website you will see the enriched and continuous learning opportunities that are a staple to our school life.
I hope that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.
Please accept our invitation to come along and see for yourself the wide and varied learning opportunities we offer and the caring and stimulating educational environment where learning is a positive and enjoyable experience.
With whatever that ‘special ingredient’ is here at Cale Green Primary School, we will continue to grow and be proud of our school - a place where children and adults can feel safe, happy and thrive as people, professionals and learners – ‘Learning and Living Together’.
