Learning Today for Tomorrow

Learning today, for tomorrow...

I would like to be the first 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 be 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

It looks like our Year 6 children are having a wonderful time at PGL. Here is a glimpse of what they have been up to, more to follow soon! We look forward to welcoming them all back today and hearing about their adventures...




Year 4 have arrived safe and well at Sayers Croft, they have already been busy settling in and have enjoyed Burgers for Lunch!

Having worked hard to prepare for and complete our SATs, we set off for Marchants Hill PGL on Monday 1st June.  We were all excited (including Mrs Farr, Mrs Galbraith and Mr Haffenden!)  and a little nervous, as for some of us it would be our first time away from home.
