Welcome from the Headteacher


A very warm welcome is extended to you from everyone at Clayton-le-Woods Church of England Primary School.

This website is intended to introduce you to our school if you are deciding which school to select for your child, are a new parent to the school, or an existing parent who wants to be kept up to date with information and events. Administration information and general organisation can also be found on this website.

It is important that as parents/carers you feel welcome in the school. Education is a partnership between home and school based on trust and mutual respect. Good relationships between home and school help to ensure that our children reach their potential academically, spiritually, socially, morally and culturally.

Clayton-le-Woods Church of England Primary School is a caring school, set in beautiful surroundings, which is continually striving to improve. Parents are encouraged to take an active part in school life through our "Enrichment Programme."

We operate an "open door policy" for teachers and myself. Please do not hesitate to email, ring or make an appointment at Reception if you have any concerns.  All enquiries should be addressed to myself at the above details.

Mrs Sue Pennington - Headteacher.
