‘Catmose Primary is a good school’ Ofsted 2013

Catmose Primary is a 210 place school with academy status in Sandringham Close, Oakham, Rutland. Our school is friendly, calm and happy. Children enjoy their time with us and leave very well prepared to start their secondary education. We are the only feeder school for Catmose College who we work in partnership with through the Rutland and District Schools’ Federation. We always welcome visitors and would be happy to give you a tour of the school which is the best way for you to determine if we are the right school for your child.

We are so proud of the children and staff at our School; it really is a welcoming and exciting School to be a part of. Our current Ofsted grading of Good in all aspects reflects this.

We have a Creative Curriculum across the School which encapsulates the way in which we work. It is designed to be Individual, Innovative and Inspiring, our 3Is.

We treat our children as individuals, we inspire them to learn and we want them to be innovative and enjoy their learning journey here at Catmose Primary.

Learning is a lifelong journey; our main aim is to ensure that every child succeeds and has the skills they need to continue that journey.

We strive to keep children safe in our care. We ensure all staff are up to date with their safeguarding training and are fully aware of their obligations through the Keeping Children Safe guidance. Links to this guidance and our safeguarding policies can be found below.

We hope you will come to Catmose Primary to meet the children and staff; we know you will be impressed by them as we are
every day.

The Ofsted report in February 2013 rated the school ‘Good’ in all categories.
