Look back with pride and forward with confidence

Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to Cotgrave Candleby Lane School


Cotgrave Candleby Lane School and Nursery is at the heart of our community and strives to ensure that every child has the support, care, guidance and challenge to be the best they can be. Our fun and engaging approach, mixed with an invigorating environment and ethos, enables staff and pupils to push boundaries to be the very best they can be in all aspects of school life.We value the uniqueness in every child and celebrate this with them. This is mirrored with the staff too as every member of our team has to celebrate and be clear about what makes them unique.  


The school is proud of the strong bonds created with our children and families. This careful development is the product of nurture; our drive to develop the school’s eight values and truly going the extra mile for our children and families. The strong bonds are also reflected in our staff team, who have a ‘can do’ approach, care for each other, learn together and work well together as a high performing team. Importantly, we also know how to have fun in what we do. 


‘Relentless in our strive for excellence’ underpins everything that we do and alongside our values (Confidence, Aspiration, Creativity, Fun, Pride, Perseverance, Respect and Responsibility), this ethos helps all our children to achieve the best that they can in all areas of their learning. Our Candleby Lane Curriculum vision is LOVE (Long term memory, Oracy rich, Values based, Experiential). Our curriculum promotes a love of learning. It is broad and balanced, rich and varied, and offers our pupils a learning journey that ensures they develop the knowledge, skills, experiences, attitudes and beliefs to become confident and passionate future citizens of the world.


All members of staff and the governing body accept responsibility for ensuring the progress of all of our children and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within a caring and nurturing environment. We hope that each child will develop a love for learning and we are determined to ensure that all of our children are given every chance to maximise their full potential.
