Ethos and Values
Calder Primary School aims to provide a caring, creative and challenging environment in which all children can thrive and succeed. We will build on the successes of Cragg Vale School and continue our important links with the village.
Our school motto is 'helping you be all you can be' and we ensure that each pupil is valued and supported in their learning to achieve their full potential. We offer a varied and balanced curriculum, which meets the varied needs and abilities of our pupils and enables them to develop their talents and skills to the highest standard. We champion the #CalderChallenge, which empowers pupils to take a growth mindset approach to their learning.
We actively encourage children to become independent learners taking an increasing responsibility for their own work and behaviour and we develop 'the whole child' through social and emotional education enabling them to develop an understanding of our society, based on tolerance and respect for others.
