Learning today, for tomorrow...

I would firstly like to warmly welcome you to Capel Primary School. Our school aims to create an atmosphere of learning through fostering a culture of ambition and high expectations in a nurturing environment. This ethos enables us to effectively challenge  students thinking, helping them refine the fundamental learning and life skills required for ‘tomorrow’. We believe that through equipping children with the necessary behaviours for learning, we will enable them to independent, secure, respectful and lifelong learners.

Our staff team all believe in being learning-centred leaders and build strong professional relationships so they can nurture and guide students to take the next learning step. In this setting you will see children’s individual successes being celebrated and all students feeling secure and safe.

At Capel Primary School we provide students with relevant learning journeys that make them active participants in their education. They will be taught how curriculum subjects intertwine and will be given real life learning experiences. This enables them to create, present and reflect upon genuine understanding through a creative teaching approach, where children get ‘hands on’ and experiment with ideas, resources and artefacts to support their learning.

The school aims to listen to and work with many different supporting bodies, one of the most important being parents. This school works in partnership with parents enabling us to support one another in the best interest of our students. We believe that this relationship, alongside those with the local community and the school Governors, enables the school to be successful and achieve its aims.

I wholeheartedly believe that this school is one where new ideas are pioneered and both students and adults are encouraged to take risks. We learn to succeed through working together. This is what makes Capel Primary School a passionate place that is excited and expectant about the potential of the young people it serves.

We truly look forward to welcoming you into our community.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Christopher Taylor

Headteacher

I wanted to write to you to welcome both you and your children back to school...

Extract from Capel Contact: We have a very exciting week approaching. The school has been looking to invest in developing ICT within the school to prepare ourselves for a new computing curriculum to start in September 2014, support our pupils in developing Numeracy understanding as well as developing pupil independence.

Extract from Capel Contact: Some of our Year 6 pupils have been treated. As a result of Mrs Hamer’s links with the BBC, we were able to arrange  a visit to BBC Broadcasting House for some of the winners of a Year 6 writing competition!
