Welcome to our wonderful school.
In September 2021 we approached the new academic year with some trepidation, knowing only too well the challenges all schools faced in the previous two years and what the year ahead could bring. Despite this, the Chilcote stakeholder troops rallied, and as a result of hard work and mutual support, we experienced a very productive and enjoyable year. The resilience and commitment of the whole school community, particularly the children, contributed to this.
We were particularly proud of:
- The progress in Reading, Writing and Maths made by all children
- The excellent attainment outcomes in the statutory tests, particularly the end of Key Stage 2 tests in which we exceeded national figures quite significantly
- Being awarded 1st place in the Kings Heath partnership interschool sports competitions – notwithstanding lockdown years, Chilcote achieved first place for the 8th consecutive year
- The sharing and implementation of our new Vision
Never a school to rest on its laurels, we know we still have more to do. We now look with assurance and excitement at the academic year 2022-23. We are looking forward to embedding the curriculum, further exploring some research-based teaching and learning strategies, broadening our extra-curricular offer, trialling the newly created Wellbeing strategy and providing ongoing training for staff who, supported by the Governing Board and through their own self-motivation, will continue to drive the school forward, enabling our wonderful children to achieve the best they possibly can. We are also very excited to welcome parents/carers back into school and we invite you to be part of and to contribute to this journey. For those who may be considering Chilcote School for September 2023, we welcome you in advance.
In anticipation of what will be another successful year, I offer you another warm welcome.
