About our school South Cave Church of England (VC) Primary School is a successful school situated in the heart of our village. We are in a beautiful and uncrowded part of the countryside with a catchment made up primarily of South Cave children as well as some children of rural villages and parishes. Our school has been serving the young people of the area for over 56 years, providing a safe and stimulating environment where our children can thrive and enjoy learning. For the 2022-23 academic year the school has 198 children on roll from Reception to Year 6, with a capacity of 210. Our school site is quite unique and offers a large outside space encouraging and supporting outside learning as well as offering a range of activities that children can use during playtime and lunch time. We also have a range of additional indoor spaces where extended learning takes place. Recently, within the school site, Bramley Lodge Pre-school and Nursery has relocated next to our school Reception Class which provides a smooth transition into school life. The school is supported by a proactive and creative PTA which holds fund raising activities throughout the year, the highlights being the Bonfire Night and Firework display, children’s discos and Teddy Bears Picnic to welcome our new children to the school. We have a very popular before and after school club within the school grounds which is also open during most school holidays. Although this is a separately run club, we have very close links, with some staff working for both the club and the school, so they know the children well. All Saints Church is in close walking distance to the School which enhances children’s learning and understanding of the School’s Christian Vision and Values, through regular reciprocal visits. Our five Christian Values are central to provide a solid foundation to learn, grow and achieve. Our Vision Statement We want every member of our school family to be the best person that they can possibly be. To recognise, develop and appreciate their gifts so that they may ‘let their light shine’. (Matthew 5:16) We strive to create well-rounded individuals who display humility and who understand that we are all valued equally as a unique creation with a responsibility to contribute to the wider world in all its diversity. This vision is underpinned by our Christian values of trust, thankfulness, compassion, perseverance and respect which are at the heart of our school.
