Our ethos of 'Dream, Believe, Achieve Together' describes a collective determination of the whole Clavering Family to work in partnership. This is exemplified by the very strong relationships between pupils, staff, families and governors


Our school is blessed with talented and caring staff members, at all levels, who aim to provide an excellent all-round experience for our children - both within and beyond the classroom - through the Clavering Curriculum.

In addition to our statutory curriculum, we offer a range of extra-curricular opportunities and programmes that enable our pupils to be active citizens, compete, work effectively with others, take on roles of responsibility and develop their leadership skills. Throughout the school, there are excellent opportunities for pupils to engage in a range of additional activities, roles and responsibilities and both our pupils and their families appreciate the opportunities to go on school visits and participate in the school's progressively challenging residentials in Year 4, 5 and 6. Through the nationally-recognised and multi-award-winning Clavering Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) Programme, all pupils have the opportunity to be physically active on a daily basis, participate in extra-curricular PESSPA activities, and compete in intra- and inter-school competitions.

As a school, we believe passionately in educating the 'whole child' and ensuring that our children leave us equipped for life in a global society and work in a global economy, determined to fulfil their aspirations. Our pupils' spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is a significant strength of the school and is promoted through a wide range of activities.

Clavering is a very inclusive school. Equality of opportunity is central to our work and we take pride in being a very caring and inclusive school where all pupils are valued and are able to access all the school has to offer. It is widely acknowledged that every member of staff works hard to make sure that all groups of pupils do as well as they can, including those with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities and those entitled to the Pupil Premium Grant.

We invite you to take a tour of our website for a flavour of what we offer:

  • for those of you considering Clavering as a possible school for your child, we hope that this website will encourage you to come and visit us to see for yourselves;
  • for those of you who are already part of the 'Clavering Family', we hope you find this website useful and agree with us that it captures the ethos and excitement of our amazing school!

Our most recent Ofsted inspection (Summer 2019) rightly agreed that our 'pupils make good progress' and that the Clavering Curriculum 'prepares pupils for the next stage of their education' whilst also highlighting how 'parents and carers are overwhelmingly supportive of the school' and that they 'greatly appreciate the approachability of staff and value the many and varied activities available for their children.'
