Ethos and Values

At Calder Primary School we aim to provide a caring, creative and challenging learning environment in which all children can thrive and succeed. 

Our Calder Learning Trust motto is 'Everybody, Everyday' and we ensure that each and every pupil is valued and supported in their learning to achieve their full potential.

Our Core Values of 'Care, Commitment, Courage' are woven through all that we do at the Calder Learning Trust.

We offer a varied, balanced and creative curriculum, which meets the varied needs and abilities of our pupils, reflects our setting within the creative Calder Valley close to Hebden Bridge and enables pupils to develop their talents and skills to the highest standard. We nurture development and celebrate achievement of pupils all the way from joining school in Reception, to leaving Calder High in Year 11.

We actively encourage and support our pupils through our curriculum and whole school approach to become:

  • Successful Learners
  • Confident Individuals
  • Responsible Citizens
