About Us

Cledford is an inclusive school at the heart of its community. It was opened in 2009 following the amalgamation of Cledford Infants and Cledford Junior schools. It is a larger than average primary school with 300 pupils on roll and an on-site pre-school facility as well as after school care. The new building is well-designed and spacious with a sports hall and large grounds. A ‘Forest Schools’ area is currently being developed in a field adjoining the school. The number of pupils eligible for free school meals is average, as is the number of pupils with special educational needs or a disability. Around 20% of pupils are from a GRT heritage.

The school has a strong tradition of teaching through the arts and currently holds ‘Artsmark Gold’. Character education is another strong aspect of the curriculum; the ‘three Rs’ at Cledford are Respect, Responsibility and Resilience. Assessment for learning techniques are a feature of all lessons in the school. Learning outside the classroom is an increasingly important part of the school’s delivery of a creative and personalised curriculum.
