We sincerely hope that all children leave with a strong sense of achievement, satisfaction and a life long love for learning. Our hope is that each child and their family will look back and recall their time at Corngreaves, as a time of achievement and hard work but also of fun and friendships; a time during which they were able to sow the seeds of future success.

Corngreaves is a wonderful place to work where all staff are valued, supported and developed to be the best they possibly can be. All staff have 8 INSET days per year in order to do this along with may other strategies to support with staff well-being and workload.

Our safeguarding and day-to-day practice around keeping children safe, and working with families ensures that you will really feel that what you do on a daily basis is highly positive and makes a difference to the lives of our children.
