Scarcliffe Primary School

Scarcliffe Primary School provides education for children aged from 4 (Reception age) – 11 years.  At present there are 92 children on roll.

Scarcliffe Primary is a fantastic place to work and learn.  We are extremely proud of the family feel there is around school and the way in which the staff and children interact with each other on a daily basis.  The school itself is a Victorian stone building consisting of four teaching areas. There is also an office, a staffroom / resource room and an on-site kitchen for school meals. In 2012 a school hall was added to the building which has been a fantastic addition giving the benefit of an indoor area for PE as well as doubling-up as a dining area at lunchtimes.

Outdoor education and activities are important to a child’s learning and development. We are fortunate to have a variety of areas within the school grounds including a large field, adjacent garden and astro-turf area in addition to our playground. Scarcliffe village itself also offers outdoor opportunities for children, including local walks and woodland area.

At our school everyone makes sure they 'STRIVE TO SHINE'.  Striving is about making a great effort.  When we talk about shining, this is not always about being the best at something - everyone can shine by doing their best.  To help children to be the best learners they can, we try to SHINE by doing the things below:

S     Stick at it

H    Help others

I      be Independent

N    Have No distractions

E     Explain your learning
