Information about the School

Cann Hall Primary School is a two-form entry school catering for children from 4-11.

We know that effective education is the key to securing promising futures for our children in what continues to be a fast changing world, where jobs and careers are increasingly global rather than just local or national. Many of these jobs are yet to be created or imagined. Knowledge and skills do not stand still and no nation on the planet can afford to be complacent in a worldwide competitive environment.

As a school we know this means we have to keep moving forward – keeping children equipped with the latest skills and knowledge they need to succeed and a love of learning, so that we can prepare them really well with all they need before they move onto secondary education.

Our children are happy, behave well and love their learning and develop effective knowledge, skills and attributes that enable them to be confident, responsible and compassionate whilst developing a respect for humankind and the world in which we live. We want every child to have the core skills of literacy and mathematics mastered and learnt through a rich and creative curriculum that encompasses science, technologies, humanities and the arts. In addition, we have a rich extra-curricular programme and facilities for ‘wrap around care’. In short, we want to create a learning community that has every child skipping through our gates each day!

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
