Welcome to Claregate Primary School
Welcome to our website. If you are a member of our existing school community there is a host of valuable information at your fingertips.

In October 2021, Ofsted stated that “Claregate Primary School continues to be a good school.”
Ofsted praised how welcoming and caring, pleasant and orderly, Claregate Primary School and Nursery is; how safe it is and how much pupils enjoy attending School. They also praised behaviour in lessons and on the playground. The curriculum was seen to be broad, with a wide range of subjects. How the whole school staff support pupils was seen as a strength.
We were particularly pleased with two aspects: how much pupils enjoy learning and that pupils make good progress.

At Claregate Primary School we aim to prepare our students to become good citizens of the future. Through our curriculum we teach pupils British values and how to celebrate diversity. We aim to raise their awareness of radicalisation and extremist views, whatever the source. We have adopted the principals and advice found in Keeping Children Safe in Education and the Prevent Strategy. These are incorporated into our school policy on tackling extremism.
