Whether you are an existing parent of the school, a prospective parent or a visitor to our website, we warmly welcome you and thank you for your interest in Callis Grange Nursery and Infant School.
It is intended that this website will provide you with some basic and useful information about our school.
Callis Grange Nursery and Infant School is a happy school in which we hope the children will feel secure and confident. Children are encouraged to take positive attitudes towards learning and to achieve the highest standards in all that they do.
Our school aims:
Callis Grange prides itself on having a happy, hardworking family atmosphere. Our supportive parents/carers, together with our professional and experienced staff, have high expectations with regard to work and behaviour. We encourage self discipline and good working habits which, in their turn, foster a feeling of self esteem, a pride in ourselves and our school, as well as consideration for others. We hope this will be reflected within the home and community.
As our Ofsted Inspection Report (2007) states “Every adult who works in the school is totally committed to ensuring pupils’ academic success and their personal well-being”.
At Callis we embrace the Every Child matters (DfES 2003) five outcomes for children’s well-being that of:
- Be healthy
- Stay Safe
- Enjoy and Achieve
- Make a positive contribution
- Achieve economic well-being
Callis Grange was last Inspected in September 2007 and was described as an “Outstanding School”! We were all delighted with the inspection outcome. In March 2011 we received an Ofsted Interim Assessment in which recognition was made by Ofsted of our sustained performance.
Callis Grange is also proud to have received a number of awards which you can read about on our website.
In July 2008 Callis Grange Nursery and Infant School was identified as a National Support School. The Staff use their knowledge and experience of teaching and learning and their understanding of schools as organisations to provide support to schools in challenging circumstances to provide advice to Government Ministers and advise the National College of School Leadership on future development strategies.
I look forward to meeting both current and new parents during the academic year. If you, as a parent/carer, wish to view the school or have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.
