Le Cateau Community Primary School is centred on the school’s motto "Equally Important, Equally Different". The aim is to make every child matter for the length of time that they are at our school. The child focussed nature of the school ensures all children are well cared for and inspired to learn.
The school is driven by 12 core values; respect, positive attitudes, co-operation, empathy, curiosity, motivation, enjoyment, honesty, perseverance, resilience, responsibility and independence. In order to achieve this, the school has instilled an ‘outward looking’ mind-set ensuring we actively involve ourselves in collaborative work and place ourselves at the forefront of change.
