Le Cateau is a mainstream Primary School that is committed to inclusive education and meeting the needs of all the children in its care. We ensure that everybody is given the opportunity to ‘shine’ – our motto ‘Equally Important, Equally Different’ recognises the diversity of the children.

At Le Cateau we are proud of our students and staff, and the positive atmosphere they create. It’s important to us that we provide academic vigour within a supportive and inviting environment where pupils enjoy learning, feel safe and make a positive contribution. This is reflected in our last Ofsted Report (February 2017). The report stated that 'Pupils’ personal development and excellent attitudes to learning remain key strengths of your inclusive school. The culture of keeping pupils safe and putting them at the heart of the inclusive, friendly school community is very evident. The school promotes pupils’ personal, social and emotional development very well. The school motto of ‘Equally Important, Equally Different’ sums up Le Cateau very well.'

The school serves a marvellous diverse community with 70% of the children coming from Service backgrounds and the remainder from the wider local community. Our children come from a range of cultural backgrounds including British, Nepali, Fiji and African Nations. This unique range of backgrounds enables the school to share and celebrate with the local community and to maintain the motto; ‘Equally Important, Equally Different’.

Ours is a caring school where the children are warmly received and encouraged throughout their time with us to ‘aim high’, fulfil their potential and engage with all the opportunities the school has to offer. We firmly believe that for this to be best achieved we must establish a genuine partnership between home and school. We work hard to engage with our parents/carers and I do encourage you to get involved in the work and life of our school whenever and wherever you can.
