Mrs Candida Hutchinson

Principal

Welcome to The Croft Primary School

On behalf of all the staff, children, parents and governors I would like to warmly welcome you to The Croft Primary School website.

At The Croft Primary School we have created a vibrant and stimulating 21st Century learning space where children can direct their own learning and tackle challenges with resilience and resourcefulness.

Our team of skilled teaching and support staff facilitate children making choices, asking questions and making decisions in order to reach their potential as independent learners. Through continuous assessment, practitioners target next steps for each child’s development. All of these aims are achieved through the medium of play as well as adult directed learning and by using a wide range of natural and manufactured resources.

We are delighted with the school’s many achievements, not least our most recent Ofsted where we were judged as Outstanding. At The Croft Primary we enhance the learning experience for children by using a holistic cross curricular approach to learning. We engage children through using topics and questions that are in response to contexts the children enjoy e.g. dinosaurs, superheroes, pirates! We use our flexible, modern classrooms and shared learning spaces for maximum differentiation to support all learning needs. We create and fund shared learning visits and visitors to stimulate and celebrate children’s learning. Our staff are energetic and dedicated to personalising the learning for all children.

We encourage our pupils to be confident individuals, independent learners and develop a lively and enquiring mind. We also want children to develop the ability to question and discuss rationally, and apply themselves to tasks and skills as they strive to reach their full true potential in all aspects of school life.

We hope that you enjoy browsing our school’s website and it gives you an insight into all that we do at The Croft Primary School. Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can help you in any other way.
