Making our mark!Posted on: January 19th 2017
Signing the steels
In recent years Claycots school has undertaken a rapid and dynamic growth, not just in numbers but in ethos and philosophy. Recently the school was named by the Department for Education and Times Education Supplement as the UK’s largest primary school and first ever primary school to go over 1200 pupils, with 1500 pupils currently on roll. In fact, it is believed that they are also Europe’s largest primary school. Gareth Morris, the Executive Headteacher said “we like to think of ourselves as a big school with an even bigger heart. Part of our growth has come from developing and investing in the high quality provision that we provide to children and families, including an enriched curriculum; our pastoral house system; outstanding facilities for learning and a thriving and powerful code, called the LIVE values”.
The number of pupils at our Town Hall Campus is expected to grow to four form entry, from the 650 pupils that attend today, to around 900. To house their growing community and the newly launched wrap-around Enigma childcare facility and to help alleviate the demand for school places in Slough, the historical Town Hall building is being expanded by 15 new classrooms, an assembly hall, library and kitchen. This week pupils from Claycots Primary School joined the Slough Urban Renewal project team at a special steel signing event to mark the progress of their new building.
Claycots are excited about the whole school development and the massive impact their high quality provision will have on the children and families of Chalvey for years to come.
