to Caistor Church of England and Methodist Primary School
We care, we share, we learn together
Caistor Church of England and Methodist Primary School is a friendly, warm and vibrant school for children from aged 3 to 11 years old. Throughout our year groups, from pre-school to Year 6, our pupils are happy, cared for and supported to enable them to reach their full potential and personal goals. We have high expectations and we are proud of our academic achievements.
Situated in the heart of Caistor, in the beautiful countryside of the Lincolnshire Wolds, we are part of a close community in an historic market town with Roman remains, an ancient holy well and Georgian houses.
Our pupils experience a broad, balanced, creative and relevant curriculum which is both meaningful and challenging; our creative curriculum places a strong emphasis on educational and cultural visits to ensure that all of our pupils benefit from diverse, rich and varied cultural experiences.
We believe that every child should be empowered to reach their potential and leave Caistor Church of England and Methodist Primary School equipped with all the necessary skills to make informed choices and to succeed in life long learning and independence.
We have an extensive field and playgrounds
Our school grounds and play equipment enable us to deliver the school curriculum and wonderful opportunities for outdoor learning.

We actively encourage parent/carer support and value the contributions that are made to enrich the life of our pupils in school.
