Welcome to Calder Vale St John's Church of England Primary School


Thank you for visiting our school website. I hope that you will find the information on this site useful.

Calder Vale C of E Primary is a Church of England school. We benefit from being situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty in the Forest of Bowland. We are able to utilise this for our curriculum with a fabulous outdoor woodland area for play and learning, a very large field for sports, an organic garden and our own chickens. Most children are drawn from the village itself and the surrounding hamlets and farms and increasingly from outside the immediate catchment and the Catterall area.

We enjoy a close relationship with the local community and our church of St John's, as well as the Methodist chapel and the Catholic community within the village. Our children are enthusiastic and  enjoy learning - they are well-motivated, caring and friendly which reflects our strong Christian values. The school sets high standards and we aim to be a school where everyone feels proud to belong, which parents are pleased to support and where everyone feels valued and fulfilled.

We are able to offer a wide ranging, stimulating curriculum with a free breakfast club starting from 7.45am. Our curriculum has a focus on high academic standards combined with developing strong, caring and happy children who are confident and able to go out into the world.

If you are thinking of visiting us, I would be delighted to show you around - please get in touch using one of the contacts provided.

To all our existing parents - we look forward to seeing you at our forthcoming events and thank you for your continued support.

Many thanks.
