We would like to welcome you to Crooksbarn Primary School. On entering the building you will feel the warm, caring ethos of this primary school where co-operation and sharing are encouraged at all times. We expect good behaviour and, in partnership with our supportive parents, we aim to share responsibility for our children’s development.
We hope that all of our children will feel part of the family atmosphere we have created here at Crooksbarn Primary.
This web site should help you find out more about Crooksbarn Primary School. It contains information and data about all aspects of the school and we hope you will find it useful as well as helping you to understand more clearly what we are trying to do.
Our school motto is “hand in hand, fulfilling our potential”. We value, seek to understand and identify this potential in everyone. We encourage our wider community to engage in school life. We aim to promote a range of values which include British democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs (and no faith).
We also aim to give our children an appreciation of diversity. We promote rights, but try to make children understand that with rights come responsibility. We value our heritage and explore our history, encouraging children to learn from this.
A Message To Parents
We want you to know about your child’s education and to take part in it. The key to getting the most out of their primary years is close co-operation between parents and school. We hope you will get involved in helping your child towards a better future.
– All staff
