Chilcote Primary School

A Rights Respecting School

Welcome to the Chilcote School website


Celebrating, developing, affirming every child

Article 28: Right to Education                       Article 29: Goals of Education


The last two years in education both nationally and internationally have been like no other. The Chilcote experience has been no exception. We, like all schools waded our way through the challenging times, switching from face-to-face to remote learning at the drop of a hat, implementing the health and safety protocols to the best our ability, with our children front and centre in all of our decision-making. ‘Togetherness’, one of our recently agreed core values, is undoubtedly one of the qualities that kept us all going and enabled us to come out the other end in a positive place. The resilience of the whole school community also contributed to this.

Despite some of the challenges we faced, we had a number of successes last year of which we are very proud:

  • Achieving the Quality Mark through the Achievement for All Foundation which celebrates our high quality Pupil Premium Provision
  • A robust Remote Learning plan
  • The completion of our new revised Curriculum
  • The successful embedding of our Reading Strategy; pupils progress and end of year attainment is testament to this
  • The embedding of some aspects of self –regulation, namely the ‘Brain Car’ where pupils speak confidently about ‘driving their learning’
  • The completion of a new school Vision.

Never a school to rest on its laurels, we know we still have more to do. We are looking forward to a restriction free year, where staff at all levels can continue to drive the school forward and where our wonderful children can continue their learning journeys with a view to achieving the best they can possibly be.  If you are an existing member of the Chilcote family, I am confident of your ongoing support to achieve our aims.

We are looking forward to and anticipating another successful and productive school year. We invite parents/carers, old and new, to be part of and to contribute to this journey. For those who may be considering Chilcote School for September 2022, we welcome you in advance.
