A very warm welcome to Caldershaw Primary School from all the staff, children and governors.
In our last inspection (November 2011) Ofsted judged Caldershaw to be an 'outstanding' school and their report can be found on the Ofsted page of our website or on the Ofsted website.
Here at Caldershaw, we believe that our children are entitled to the very best education and we promote high standards of attainment and behaviour from the beginning. We help our children to develop the confidence to learn and the knowledge and skills to be good learners in school and beyond. As our children move though school, we build resilience and independence and foster caring and thoughtful children with high self-esteem.
We pride ourselves on the fact that we know and care for all our children well and we put them at the heart of everything we do. We are committed to enjoyment and excellence in all aspects of school life not least in our commitment to promoting a healthy lifestyle and caring for our environment. We were only the second primary school in Rochdale to become a Green Flag Eco school and our wildlife trail and pond area provide stimulating outside classrooms for all our children and for Forest School. We have maintained Green Flag status for over 10 years, as well as the national Healthy schools award and the Platinum School Games Mark. We have also been recognised for our Arts provision with a Silver Artsmark award and the Heritage Schools award for our local history curriculum project. Our whole school MyHappyMind programme teaches our children the science behind their thought and behaviour processes and supports their mental wellbeing.
All our staff are dedicated to our children and work incredibly hard to enable them to discover their true potential. We have developed a creative topic and experience based curriculum, which provides opportunities for more meaningful learning by linking subjects like science, history and Art and including trips and visitors into school. Our aim is to develop the key skills and secure the knowledge and understanding that children need to succeed.
Our CARE values are at the heart of our ethos and embedded in our children's exemplary behaviour and attitudes to their learning, those around them and the world we live in. Ours Stars of the Week are chosen for their CARE values; our Team points and CARE cards are awarded to those children who display our CARE values and we embody our CARE values in all that we do. We
Care for each other
