Welcome to Calow Church of England (VC) Primary School

Welcome to Calow CofE VC Primary School website. 

Our school is situated in the heart of Calow, close to St Peter's Church in beautiful grounds overlooking fields.  The Royal hospital can be seen in the distance from our top playground. We are fortunate enough to have an outdoor classroom and our own woodland area. 

Our school motto is 'Show your SHINE everywhere' and reflects out high expectations of all our staff and children in and out of school. Every day one child in every class is chosen for a SHINE award if they have displayed our core values of: 

Show respect

Honesty and Kindness

Include everyone

Never give up

Enthusiastic learners

Our school is a community in which every aspect of a child’s education is important. We want all our children to feel successful, happy and healthy. We want them to enjoy and make the most of their time at school, setting themselves up well for the future. 

We provide a varied, stimulating, and challenging environment and curriculum to ensure that they reach their full potential.  Our expectations of their behaviour, effort and attitude are high, all based on our key values and Christian ethos. 

If you would like to know more about our school, then please do not hesitate to contact me to arrange a visit to see for yourself.


I look forward to meeting you.
