A welcome from the Headteacher

Welcome to the Cavendish Community Primary School website.  I hope that it gives you a flavour of our vibrant, diverse, inclusive and happy school community. 

We have an unwaivering committment to ensuring that each child makes the best progress possible, both personally, socially and academically.

We never lose sight of the importance of basic skills in English and Maths, and the “3 Rs” are our top priority. In addition, we strive to provide excellent opportunities for children to shine in many other areas including music, sport, drama, art, languages and ICT. We also have close links with high schools in the state and independent sectors to provide enrichment experiences for gifted and talented children, and to ensure that our children make successful transitions to their chosen high school.

We believe that every child has the right to enjoy a first class education. We want the same for your children as we want for our own children - high standards of achievement, excellent behaviour, a broad curriculum that enables all to shine, and an enjoyable primary school experience that prepares children well for the next stage of their lives.  We know that choosing the best school for your child is a huge decision to make.  That's why we are always happy to welcome you to Cavendish for a walkaround and to answer any questions you might have about what we offer.  The best way to see if Cavendish is right for your child is to phone us, book an appointment and come down.  We don't stage formal open mornings - we want you to be able to see us just as we are.

We hope that the website is helpful, and we look forward to meeting you and your child.
