Brancaster CE VA primary school
Welcome to Brancaster
We aim to help your child develop a lively, enquiring mind and an enthusiasm for learning by treating them as individuals, giving them equal opportunities and building on their successes. As a Church of England Voluntary Aided School the spiritual progress of our children is as important to us as their academic education.  We encourage children to develop a spiritual, moral, social and cultural awareness in a Christian atmosphere. We are committed to providing a broad and balanced curriculum with a sound grounding in the basic skills of Literacy and Numeracy, together with the independence and confidence to apply these skills.
