Welcome to Christ Church School
On behalf of all staff, children, parents and governors I would like to welcome you to Christ Church Chalford C of E primary school. We are a small, but perfectly formed, voluntary aided school with the needs of individual children at the heart of all we do. You will find us in the beautiful and historic valley of Chalford; a short distance from Stroud town centre.
Happy children make the best learners, and the pupils at Christ Church Chalford say they enjoy school and feel safe and secure. Due to our small class sizes, we are able to offer better ratios of children to adults than most schools and we feel that this, alongside our inclusive atmosphere, helps all the children at the school reach their full potential. We are privileged to be involved in each and every child’s learning journey, and we like to celebrate all of their talents and skills throughout the school year.
Highly praised for our engaging curriculum by Ofsted, we are committed to giving the children a wide range of learning experiences. Our creative values based curriculum allows us to explore those all important personal and social skills, alongside building key knowledge. We pride ourselves on our Growth Mindset approach which encourages children to be resilient and believe in their own immense potential.
We are also able to develop strong relationships with parents and carers, and we like to involve families and the wider community in the life of the school. Our weekly preschool sessions offer great preparation for the Primary school journey.
We hope you find the information on the website helpful, but a visit to the school is recommended so that you can experience the happy and welcoming atmosphere.
Come and see if our family is right for your family!
Rebecca Slater, Executive Head Teacher
