John Clare Primary School

At John Clare Primary we aim to provide every child with experiences and learning opportunities that excite, challenge and help to prepare them for their future.
As a small school we pride ourselves on knowing our children well and that we can focus on the individual needs of every child and help them to develop their interests and skills.
OFSTED 2016 said of the school ‘John Care Primary remains an exciting place for children to learn.’
‘Our children are thriving and progressing incredibly well academically, personally and socially.  The ethos of the school can be seen in everything that the staff do.’
The school is named after the local village poet, John Clare, who lived from 1793-1864. The school celebrates the birth of John Clare every year when we take part in the Midsummer Cushions festival and the John Clare Society Festival.
Due to the popularity of the school the school has grown since it was opened in 1965 and now comprises of 4 classrooms. In September 2019 an additional Key Stage 2 class will be added to accommodate the increase in numbers. The school field is dual-use and is used by the village after school hours and during weekends and holidays.
