About Topcliffe Primary School

Topcliffe is an inclusive, committed and caring school where the children are placed at the very heart of everything we do. For us, education is about meeting the needs of the whole child by focusing on the development of their well-being and character as well as their academic achievement and supporting them to achieve their potential. In order to achieve this, our staff work hard to deliver a values based, rich curriculum that inspires and challenges all children academically, whilst also encouraging them to be curious, independent and develop a love of learning. A major feature of our school is the large 56 place resource base for students with autism and speech and language needs. Therefore, experience of, and a commitment to, inclusive practice is essential.
