Welcome from the Headteacher


Dear parents, carers and the public

I am delighted to introduce this website which I hope provides you with an insight into all that makes Crowland Primary School such an outstanding place to learn.

Crowland Primary School is a happy, popular and highly successful school which provides an excellent education for over 400 children.

I am immensely proud to be the Headteacher of this vibrant learning community. Our aim is for all of our children to achieve their potential and to prepare them to thrive in a rapidly changing world. Pupils are valued as individuals and we are passionately committed to their achievement, personal growth and excellence in everything we do.

We have a hugely talented and committed staff team, with a range of well qualified and dedicated professionals to make sure that our curriculum, guidance, care and support meets the different needs of every child and we pride ourselves on having high expectations which ensures that our children are well organised, caring and supportive of each other and also personally ambitious.

Our strong tradition of success is built on a firm foundation of strong pastoral care and we ensure a climate for learning which is well ordered, safe, calm and focused on achievement and success.

Examination results and the progress made by our pupils are excellent when compared to the national average. Achievement is also high in that all pupils are enabled to reach their potential. We are particularly proud of the care and guidance we provide for all of our pupils, including the most academically gifted who have secured scholarship places at a variety of independent schools  and those who have significant additional needs, who make significant progress. We also encourage and expect all of our pupils to become independent learners and to develop their leadership skills.

We work with our pupils in a collaborative and orderly atmosphere of mutual respect and trust. This gives them a sense of belonging and a pride in our school and in themselves. Above all, we are committed to working together as a team. We believe that by working together we can ensure opportunity and success for everyone and we can all live by our motto of ‘Together Everyone Achieves More’. Every child has unlimited potential and together we can make sure that this potential is fulfilled.

We pride ourselves on very close, open and positive relationships with parents and carers and expect them to be fully involved in supporting the learning of their son or daughter. We are very active in our local and wider community and we also work closely with many universities to mentor and develop training teachers.

By choosing Crowland Primary School for your child you are committing yourself to working with us for your child’s future in our caring, aspirational school. I have pleasure in inviting you to visit the school to meet our wonderful children and staff and to judge for yourself what makes this such a special community in which to learn.

Exploring this website will give you a clear idea of the culture and ethos of our outstanding school but please contact us if you need to find out more.
