Who We Are
Camp Primary and Nursery School is a much expanded community school. The children come predominantly from the surrounding neighbourhood and reflect the ethnic diversity of the community. We welcome the rich diversity of backgrounds our children bring with them. In addition to our work with the children we also offer additional “extended” provision for our pupils, pre-school children and parents through adult and community learning programmes, many of which are “Intergenerational”.
We are a one-form entry school with a 60 place nursery that also feeds Cunningham Hill and Windermere Schools. The children are currently arranged in 9 classes, (including 2 Nursery sessions). The Nursery and Reception classes work together closely as a Foundation Stage Unit. The main school building is over 100 years old but it has been greatly extended and improved in recent years to accommodate new technology and growing numbers of children.
What makes Camp different?
We would highlight three things:
Firstly we are able to provide continuity: covering the complete National Curriculum from the Foundation Stage in the Nursery and Reception classes, to the end of Key Stage Two and readiness for secondary school. This means that we can ensure each child has a seamless and coherent learning experience from the age of three through to eleven.
Secondly, we encourage children to develop their natural creativity. We provide opportunities for them to experience and develop a wide range of interests and skills through dance, drama, music and a variety of visual arts.
Finally, we work closely with the local community, encouraging parents into school to learn alongside their children through a variety of innovative projects, and through a wide range of partnerships in education and the arts.
We hope that our website will answer many of your questions about Camp School, but if you would like more information or have any further questions please get in touch.
