Headteachers Welcome



Welcome to Captain’s Close Primary School. We are delighted to be able to share with you our vision and values to help you get a true flavour of our school. We are confident that you will find us a welcoming school – one where your child will flourish and realise their potential, whatever that potential might be.

Captain’s Close is a small primary school that is rated Good by Ofsted. Being a small school means we know all our children. It means we have a better idea of what motivates them and what success should look like for them.

We believe that small schools allow every child to reach their potential.

All our staff are passionate about making children happy, developing their confidence and inspiring them to be successful. This passion ensures that Captain’s Close is a vibrant and creative place to be.

We believe in linking classroom experiences to real-life concepts so our children can develop an understanding of the importance and relevance of education. Helping them to see the bigger picture about what they are doing in school means they are ready to thrive in a changing world.

Our pastoral team works hard to ensure that pupil wellbeing and support is a focus for all staff. As a team, we are committed to supporting all children, and we are extremely proud of the excellent support that we provide to those pupils with additional needs.

We have strong links with our community. We are proud of the community that the school is a part of, and we work hard to make that community proud of us. Our parents are fantastic and actively support the school, both informally and through the work our PTA – the Friends of Asfordby Captain’s Close (FOACC).

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us. We operate an ‘open door’ policy at Captain’s Close and recognise the importance of communicating with the parents and families of the children in our care. We welcome visitors to our school and if you wish to come and have a look around please feel free to make an appointment by contacting the school office at any time.
