"Cleeve Prior Church of England Primary School is at the centre of its community, welcoming and encouraging all. It has experienced a period of challenge and change, but has held fast to caring for and nurturing those it serves. With support from governors, staff, parents, DOWMAT and Worcestershire Diocese the leadership is moving the school forward driven by its vision. Stakeholders talk passionately about the positive impact this school has on their lives. The support given and the sense of belonging experienced is tangible. Families appreciate the generational and lifelong relationships they have with this school."

"Leaders ensure the vision to pursue learning, discovery and growth, through nurture and caring, permeates all decisions and actions. They understand and articulate the importance of the vision and how this weaves through daily life here. Adults and pupils feel valued as unique individuals and are enabled to flourish. This sense of belonging creates a calm atmosphere around school, where kindness and understanding are key. Forgiveness is the primary value underpinning these successful relationships. Adults recognise the impact a restorative approach to supporting behaviour and forgiveness has on pupils’ understanding about their actions. Pupils describe how this approach has helped their wellbeing and relationships."

"A well planned curriculum is matched to the context and the individual needs of the pupils. This is reviewed annually as the needs of the cohorts in mixed age classes change. Staff carefully craft the opportunities to ensure all are enabled to ‘learn, discover and grow.’ They constantly consider the needs of all pupils and how the curriculum is designed to meet these needs. The vision drives and supports these considerations. Spiritual development opportunities are planned within the curriculum, facilitating the beginnings of spiritual growth. Pupils and adults share the same language of ‘wows’ with the excitement of these moments being displayed as ‘stars’ in the hall. This leads to pupils beginning to make connections with their behaviours and something more personal and deeper within themselves. Through these strong relationships, staff are dedicated to ensuring all pupils develop their unique talents and skills knowledgeably and spiritually. As a result, disadvantaged pupils and those with additional needs grow in confidence through many different and varied opportunities."
