Thank you for visiting our website. I hope that it will enable you to find any information you are looking for, as well as giving you an insight into what a wonderful place Littleport Community Primary School is to learn and work.
Our aim is to provide an excellent education for all of our children, helping them develop the confidence, skills, curiosity and understanding to grow and progress academically, socially and emotionally. Learning opportunities are created in class, in our wonderful school grounds, around the school, on visits and by guests who come in to work with the children. Please have a look at the photos in our 'Year Group' area of the 'Pupils' section to see what we have been getting up to...
We pride ourselves in developing the ‘whole child’, and our personalised approach to learning means that children are supported, challenged, stretched and inspired in a wide range of exciting learning opportunities through our broad and balanced curriculum.
As you'd imagine, academic progress, learning and excellence are key for everyone, and so is the chance to shine in sport, music, the arts and all other areas of learning. We want all of our children not just to reach their potential but to exceed our expectations, be the best and 'spread their wings and fly'.

Ofsted visited us in March 2015, and agreed that we are a 'good and improving school'. Highlights from the report include:
‘Pupils achieve well and make good progress; achievement is good and improving’
‘The Headteacher provides very strong leadership and the school is improving very quickly as a result'
‘The quality of teaching is good throughout. The quality of teachers’ marking is a particular strength’
‘The school offers a well-designed curriculum that is continually developing. It is enriched, for example by its focus on languages, outdoor learning and the wide range of clubs that enhance provision’
‘Pupils take great pride in their work, and exercise books are beautifully presented'
‘Pupils play well together and enjoy each other’s company’
‘There is little bullying at the school and pupils trust that staff will deal with issues promptly when they arise’
‘A group of Year 6 boys told the Lead Inspector that it is ‘cool to learn’ at Littleport.
Our success is based on our passion for teaching and learning. Our professional and supportive staff work closely with parents, families, governors, volunteers, outside agencies and the wider local community to bring about the best possible provision for our pupils. Learning and enjoyment happen throughout the day; we offer a wide range of extra-curricular clubs in sport, the arts, music, dance, gardening, ICT and Maths - all provided free of charge to all ages.
Littleport Community Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff, parents and volunteers to actively share this commitment. Our Designated Persons for Child Protection are Mr Cattermole, Headteacher, Mr Newton, Inclusion Coordinator and Mrs Fox, Children's Support Worker.
Our school is a special place to learn, with modern learning facilities, in a purpose-built building from 2007, which we share with Littleport Community Pre-School and the Children’s Centre for the whole community.
We welcome visits to our school, and we look forward to you joining us. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more. Our new School Prospectus Summer 2017 is here for you to find out more about us - we look forward to meeting you!
