Cradle Hill Community Primary School

Cradle Hill Open Day


'In early years , leaders ensure a rich experience for all pupils. In Reception well trained staff promote a love of reading, igniting children's imaginations and language development. In mathematics, children are engaged through hands on learning experiences. They develop mathematical understanding in a variety of ways, including through high quality hands on activities In both Reception and Nursery, the learning environment promotes problem solving and resilience through well planned learning opportunities.' OFSTED July 2023


Virtual Open Day

Over the last few years, to keep our community safe, we were sadly unable to hold our usual Open Day events. Happily, parents and carers can now visit our school in person but we have continued to keep these videos on here in case they are useful to those who are too far away to visit us!

Below you will find a selection of videos that will guide you around Cradle Hill, giving you an opportunity to see what we have to offer.  We know these videos will not be the same as being able to see and experience the school itself during a normal day but we hope that it gives you a flavour of what our school is like. Please do enjoy these and contact us if you would like to know more.

If you have additional questions or would like to speak to us please contact the school office on 01323 892773 or email or
