Welcome from the Headteacher

I would like to warmly welcome you to the Calcot Schools’ website.  We consist of a nursery, Infant and Junior school and we work together to ensure children have excellent support throughout their first years of education.  The school is thriving and numbers are increasing year on year.  We currently have nearly 600 pupils on roll.  We serve a diverse catchment and have many families who are very supportive of the learning environment and ethos of our school.  The behaviour of our children is exemplary and we are very proud of the working partnership between the children, staff and parents.  At Calcot the children come first and everything we do is aimed at extending children’s learning experiences, enriching lives through the opportunities we offer, and encouraging children to have enthusiasm for their learning.  We work tirelessly to ensure the education and pastoral support for our children enables them to achieve their full potential. We have an 'open door' policy and we encourage parents to come into school and play an active part in their children’s learning. The staff, governors and parents form a strong team working tirelessly to maintain and continuously improve the standards and achievements in school and nurture our children through their formative years. 

It is difficult to capture the friendly and welcoming ethos in writing, so I would strongly encourage you to visit our school, meet the staff, children and experience this for yourselves.  I would encourage you to read our Aims and Philosophies to find out more about our philosophy for learning and what we believe is important for children to thrive.

I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful school.

Florence Rostron

  • Young Carer's Awareness Day 2019

    On the 31st January is Young Carer's Awareness Day.  Current figures are that 1 in 5 secondary children have a caring role.  The figures are 1 in 10 for children under the age of 10.

    A young carer is someone under 18 who helps look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs or alcohol. They will do many tasks like:

    Practical tasks, such as cooking, housework or shopping.

    Physical care, such as helping someone out of bed.

    Emotional support, such as talking to someone who is distressed.

    Personal care, such as helping someone dress.

    Managing the family budget and collecting prescriptions.

    Helping to give medicine.

    Helping someone communicate.
