Our Christian values of community, compassion, friendship and trust support the spiritual and moral development of our children as we grow and learn together.


Our aims:

Children, staff, governors and parents have high expectations of one another and themselves. As a school family, we aim to recognise and nurture the needs, strengths and talents of each and every child, providing opportunities to think independently, love learning and reflect on the wonder of God’s creation. We aim to build self-esteem so that children develop the confidence to have open hearts, open minds and respect others, whilst having the courage to be true to themselves. Through high-quality, creative teaching, we inspire, stimulate and challenge children to fulfil their potential.  We aim to create curiosity and prepare children for life in an ever-changing world.


School prayer

Dear Lord, guide us with your love to:

C are for everyone in the community and the wider world

H eal the past and grow the future

R espect one another

I nspire one another to be the best we can

S trengthened by your Holy Spirit

T ogether we are a family and will do our best to live the way you taught us.


This Friday, 24th March will be Class 3 Collective Woship at 8.55am.

Welcome to Topcliffe C of E (VC) Primary School…

At Topcliffe C of E, our motto is `Growing, believing, achieving together’ and we pride ourselves in sharing this with the children every day.

There is something very special about our school and we all feel incredibly proud of it. The children describe being at Topcliffe Primary as ‘being part of a school family’.

As headteacher of Topcliffe C of E (VC) Primary School, I feel privileged to work with such keen learners, both children and staff, and to be well supported by an enthusiastic governing body who work hard to ensure the best for everyone in our school.

At Topcliffe Primary, we are all passionate about sport and our sporting teams achieve highly in local competitions.  We provide a range of after school clubs to give children extra sporting time! We also love music and this is reflected in our high quality productions. We look for any opportunities to enjoy extra music, whether it’s through maths and science or when we spend time together in Collective Worship. We have specialist sport and music teachers that encourage the children to be active and enthusiastic.

We hope you will feel when you visit Topcliffe C of E (VC) Primary School that it is a truly special place to learn and see why people choose to come to our school.
