Hopefully if you have visited the school or viewed our website, you will have a good idea of the kind of school we are. But, what’s in it for you? Why should you apply for this school rather than anywhere else?

The children . . . are well-behaved, enthusiastic, and they love being here. You will find working with them tremendously rewarding.

The staff . . . are also well-behaved, enthusiastic, and love being here (most of the time!) They are also supportive to new and existing colleagues and you will benefit from their experience and expertise.

The environment . . . is one that you will find hard to beat, with a large field and playground space, pond and wildlife area, allotment, heated indoor swimming pool, and excellent curriculum resources including a well-equipped music room. We also have an active and supportive body of parents and a committed and informed Governing Body.

Claygate is a popular two-form entry primary school in the NE of Surrey with a governor run nursery taking children from 2 years old. The school is located on a lovely green site in the centre of Claygate village. Our recent Ofsted in 2023 graded the school Good with Outstanding EYFS Provision.

We believe strongly in developing the whole child, and therefore place great emphasis on children’s physical, creative, emotional and social development, as well as their academic progress. In fact our recent Ofsted graded Personal Development at CPS as Outstanding! We rank in the top 15% of schools nationally for progress in SATs at the expected level and at greater depth!

Our curriculum is broad, balanced, creative, and developing. Our themed approach, based on the principle of 'contexts for learning', promotes active and stimulating learning which aims to inspire children and staff.

We have twice been awarded Artsmark Gold in recognition of our high quality provision in music, art, dance and drama; our children enjoy enrichment sessions which they explore as part of our Claygate Charter.
