Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to our website!

Cranford Park CE Primary School is a delightful one-form entry school, hidden in the heart of Yateley. The school opened in September 2010 following the amalgamation of Yateley Infant and St Peter’s CE Junior Schools. As a primary school, we now provide continuity for children as they move through their primary years, while our small size affords us the privilege of getting to know each of our children and families well. Our purpose is to provide a happy, warm and nurturing environment in which young children thrive and we work in close partnership with families to give our children the best possible start to their learning journey.

We aim high and are ambitious for our children: we want them to be happy, positive and self-confident, to develop a love for learning, to make a positive contribution to their community and to be the very best that they can be. Our approach is underpinned by our Christian values and vision, which help to shape every element of our practice. Our close links with St Peter’s Church also support us to enable spiritual growth, as children explore faith, developing understanding and a sense of awe and wonder.

We know that children learn best when they feel secure and have positive experiences at school. Our staff are hardworking, highly motivated and committed to guiding every child to achieve happiness and success. We provide for them those exciting, challenging first-hand learning experiences and special moments, inside and outside of the classroom, that will ‘grow their brains’ and that they will remember forever. We offer a rich, vibrant environment and a wealth of opportunities for our pupils throughout their time with us, supporting them to flourish, live a fulfilling and joyful life and make a real difference in the world.

“Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)

Visitors to our school comment on the lovely atmosphere, the happy team of staff and the well-behaved children. Children talk with pride about their learning and are eager to share their high-quality work. Our children, parents, governors and staff are all very proud of our amazing school.
