Welcome to Clapham Terrace

Welcome to Clapham Terrace Community Primary School and Nursery. We are extremely proud of our school and the distinctive Victorian buildings in which it is housed. We believe in providing a vibrant and engaging curriculum, which excites children in their learning. We also value each child as an individual and we actively celebrate diversity within school. Our school is at the heart of its local community and we fully involve parents and local community members in the day to day life of the school. We hope that our website gives you a flavour of our school ethos as well as providing useful information but do get in touch if you have any questions.

Clapham Terrace Receives Inclusive School Award

Clapham Terrace Primary School, Leamington Spa has achieved a national award from IQM. Read their comments about the school below and on the IQM website

The Heart of the Community

Clapham Terrace is set within an established community where housing consists mostly of established terraced properties. As a consequence, the school really is at the heart of the community and as it has been in place for over a hundred years, its reputation is well known. In recent years the standards of provision and the attainment outcomes have been on an upward trajectory, in spite of the significant deprivation, diversity and complexity of its pupil population.

Impressive Changes Made

The Headteacher and her committed team of colleagues have made impressive changes in recent years, both to the fabric of the building and to the standards of teaching and learning. The changes they have collectively made have ensured that all children, irrespective of their particular needs, receive the support they require and as a consequence, children behave well, enjoy their learning and make very good progress from their starting points.

Inclusive Practice is Embedded

There is a very well embedded inclusive practice in all classrooms, supplemented by input by staff with more specialist knowledge. Furthermore, the school has created bespoke learning zones for nurture and for intervention and support which ensures that all children progress well.

The assessor was delighted to see the consistent quality of inclusive provision in the school and recommends that the school be awarded the Inclusion Quality Mark and reviewed in 3 years’ time.

A Sense of Cohesion

There is a distinct sense of cohesion, clarity and purpose among all staff. The school nurtures and supports every child, regardless of the level of need. Through very carefully planned support, guidance and intervention in addition to focused teaching and the social, emotional and behaviour support systems, children learn to become accepting of everyone around them and make good progress. The skills they acquire as a result of these strategies, enable them to become confident and well-rounded individuals.

Systematic Guidance and Support

All children at Clapham Terrace Primary are provided with systematic guidance and support to ensure that they engage well with each other and embrace positive values for life. This guidance inevitably takes a variety of forms. From early years, children’s social and emotional development is a key priority and this is carefully built upon through generic systems aligned with the school’s PSHE programme.

Chinese New Year

A report by Annabel and Joey - CTCN Reporters

The Chinese New Year is where each year is named after a different animal.

They had a race with 13 different animals to decide on which year they represented.  The cat is not shown in any of the years because it got tricked.  The rat pushed the cat off the ox and tricked the ox in given him a ride, when he didn't need on.  This year is the year of the Rooster.

The Chinese New Year is very important to the Chinese.  It is defined as the first day of the first month.  They eat dumplings in a New Year's Eve dinner.  They also eat New Year's dinner cake which is a hard cake and is eaten in Eastern China.

Next year is the year of the dog.

Year 6 are having a fantastic time in Marle Hall.


This week we launched an exciting initiative in partnership with Warwick District Council promoting healthy lifestyles.  Mrs McArthur arranged for all classes to work with the Change for Life practitioners on the playground.  They should have all bought home a goody bag please talk to your children about their learning around healthy life styles and look out for the letter promoting the up and coming Lifestyle initiative which will run on Tuesday afterschool starting on the 4th October .

Home Learning has got off to a fantastic start, I have been impressed by the enthusiasm of the children in Year 1 and 2 as they share their learning with me about their Tudor houses. These will be displayed in the lower school corridor next week if you wish to come in and see them.

Year 5 have been busy making use of our new 3D printer, Mr Filby is struggling to stay ahead of their designing capabilities!  Their World War II medals are looking spectacular.

The clubs all started this week, it is great to see so many children enjoying a full and varied      programme.  Zumba has gone down very well, there are still some spaces available if your child is in Key Stage 2 and would like to join Mrs Ozaslan on a Wednesday please contact the office.

Inter-house Indoor Athletics Competition

On Friday 25th March, the Sports Leadership Council organised an indoor athletics competition for the whole school.  The events consisted of javelin, speed bounce, standing long jump and high stepper.  Everyone worked really hard to help their house win and eventually after hours of counting house points GOBLIN came out on top by ONE house point.

A special mention goes to our Sports Leaders for organising a fantastic event.
