Cliddesden Primary School is located in beautiful countryside and was originally built to serve the people from three neighbouring villages. This is still true today although now, pupils also come from surrounding areas of Basingstoke including Hatch Warren, Beggarwood, Kempshott and Brighton Hill. Links with the community are well established and very good relationships exist between governors, parents and staff.
The school was built in 1876 extended in 2001 and has 4 classrooms. In addition there is a PE/Assembly hall, school office, library, 2 study rooms, and kitchen, in which all meals are cooked on site.
We are a fully inclusive school with pupils aged between 4 and 11. The classes are organised as follows: Reception and Year 1, Years 1 and 2, Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6.
The school offers a broad, balanced and differentiated curriculum covering all areas of the National Curriculum and our aim is to promote learning that meets the needs, interests and abilities of all children.
We offer excellent standards of care, guidance and support and a high-quality learning environment to support all learners equally. We meet and achieve above national expectations at the end of each key stage through the delivery of rigorous learning. The school upholds an ethos of high expectations which provides children with challenging opportunities where children acquire skills, knowledge and confidence that can be applied to all future learning experiences. These opportunities encourage respect, self-belief, excellence and enjoyment and prepare our pupils for the next stage of their education.
To achieve this we will strive to provide a school environment that will be secure, stimulating, supportive and memorable, whereby each child feels valued as part of our community and encouraged to achieve their full potential.
