Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to St Chad's Church of England Primary School!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to St. Chad’s website.

The information in this website is designed to give you as much information as possible about the many activities and opportunities, which take place in our exciting school. Our aim, quite simply is to do the very best for children and recognise their individuality and uniqueness. Childhood is a very special and wonderful time and no one gets a second chance at it.

We are very conscious that education is a partnership between home and school. We believe children are happiest and learn more effectively when there is a strong partnership between home and school. We also wish to strengthen our links with our parish and local community.
At St. Chad’s, everyone is listened to and their contributions valued. Our very successful Ofsted and SIAS Inspections, in June 2013, highlighted our school’s many strengths and excellent qualities and these are available for you to view on our key information page.

We have very high expectations for our pupils’ behaviour and this is underpinned by our caring, sharing Christian ethos. We always strive to further improve the excellent quality of teaching and learning in our school, which is enhanced by modern teaching methods and resources.

We are always delighted to see you and we trust that with your help your child will be a happy, well-educated and cherished member of our school.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. Please feel free to leave comments in the Guestbook, or contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

Thank you for visiting!

Mrs Helen Pratten

Executive Headteacher

At St. Chad’s C of E Primary school our mission: “In the light of God; we care, we share, we laugh, we learn” is central to everything we do. We are an inclusive school where at the heart of St. Chad’s Education is the development of the character of each child. As a Christian school our curriculum promotes the development of key Christian values linked to civic, moral and performance outcomes. Our Christian values are fully aligned with British values. This mirrors the Church of England’s vision for an education which promotes “life in all its fullness” (John 10:10).

St. Chads is a warm and welcoming school, full of children who are eager to learn supported by talented teachers and support staff. We have high aspirations and expectations for every one of our pupils and all our staff are committed to providing the highest quality of education to ensure every child has the opportunity to achieve and succeed. Through creative, engaging and relevant learning experiences we aim to embed a love of learning.

The children at St. Chads are amazing and it is a privilege to work with them every day. Our young people continually impress the adults in school with their academic achievements and their personal, social and spiritual development. We place huge importance on Pupil Voice and encourage our children to play an active role in school-life, offering their ideas and taking on responsibilities within the school community.  Children are encouraged to build an understanding of social responsibility and their role within a Global community.

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. We take our partnership with parents very seriously and through collaboration, will work with you to achieve the best possible outcomes for your child. We hope that our website will provide you with an insight into the distinctive nature of St. Chads and the many opportunities children are given to allow them to grow into well-informed, well-rounded and socially responsible individuals. Please do not hesitate to contact us to for further information or to arrange school visits.
