Calder Primary School

Update letter 4th September

Please click here to read our update letter from Mrs Lambert.  



Starting Back in September

School will begin on Wednesday 6th September at 9.00am. School will be open to visit, chat to the teachers and join in activities with your child or children. The first week will be relaxed as pupils get to know their new surroundings and one of our first jobs will be for each class to elect their new school councillors so that they can feedback their class's ideas and suggestions to Mrs Lambert. 


School Day times

Our school day is from 9.00 am - 3.30pm 

School entrance

Our site can be accessed from Midgley Road - please look for our new Calder Primary School sign. Parents are welcome on site to drop-off and collect pupils. New collection forms will be sent out in the first week, so we have up to date information on who is permitted to collect your child or if your child has permission to walk home (Key Stage 2 only) 

The Ark and Big Foot can continue their before and after school care as usual and have been updated on our new site and timings.
