I am delighted to welcome you to the Clare House website. I hope it will give you a flavour of life at the school and a sense of what we value for our children and in our children.
Clare House is a school with high expectations and high standards. We have high expectations of the children, whether that is applying themselves to their learning in the classroom, having good manners with everyone they meet or when taking part in one of the many opportunities outside the classroom. We value perseverance, hard work and a positive attitude. We instil the qualities that will prepare our children for success here, at secondary school and beyond.
As a staff we have high standards as well. We constantly ask ourselves, ‘would this be outstanding for my child?’ We strive to say ‘yes’ to this question in everything we do.
We are a community based school, with a family atmosphere. It is a school where every child is known as an individual and where our Governing Body, PTA and hugely supportive parent body play a central role in helping us to achieve what we want for our children; an outstanding education.
If you are in the process of applying for school places, please come and visit us on one of our Open Days. It is important that you see the school in action and get a sense of it ‘at work’; this will help you to make the important decision about your child’s primary school education.
We look forward to meeting you.
