Captain Shaw's CE Primary School and community hall provides small class sizes. The school gives great individual attention for pupils hence the opportunity for individualised learning.
Teachers know pupils well and can act early to prevent problems arising. Children interact with all ages in a natural manner, not just in their year group. Children of all ages mix together going on school trips and taking part in plays. This helps optimise their learning and communication skills - which students would not normally get from a large school
The school is an integral part of the community. Children who learn from the community have a vast opportunity to interact and learn from different aspects of village life from the church, chapel, shop, butchers, the Byre and Abbeyfield. Having the school in the village also lets a lot of pupils walk to school so they become more road aware, cuts down on transport costs and is also kinder to the environment!
