We are an Outstanding school with the highest expectations and aspirations for all our pupils. Cleves is a happy and exciting learning community that nurtures all students to achieve to be the best they can be.
Our Curriculum is rich in the delivery of basic skills as well as the mastery and application of knowledge. We have designed a curriculum that is ambitious and provides all learners with the knowledge they need to succeed.
The learning environment celebrates and reflects the high emphasis we place on the creative arts, sciences and sports to enrich the learning experience.
We aim to reflect the diversity of the community we serve through strong and powerful community cohesion with high parental involvement. Across the school, in a celebration of our community, we hold cultural evenings at least twice a year. We have established links with sister schools in France, India, and Uganda. We also promote an understanding of citizenship and British Values through school visits to central London, rural and coastal areas.
We work with local theatre groups of professional actors to perform both classical and modern drama including our annual Shakespeare festival and termly music recitals for the whole community.
All of our children are encouraged to learn a musical instrument. We currently have developed our Commonwealth Choir which will be performing throughout the summer at events across the borough. Our annual music festival in June showcases some of our talented children.
We encourage parental involvement in our learning through parent workshops and coffee mornings that reflect the needs of all pupils and parents from online safety to phonics and healthy eating.
We offer a large selection of after school clubs including boxercising, sewing club and one to one tuition to ensure that all children meet their full potential.
You are more than welcome to come and visit and look around this amazing place in East Ham.
