On behalf of our entire school community, I’d like to welcome you to our wonderful school. I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of Churchfield Primary School, where our dedicated staffing team have an unrivalled passion and love for our children, enabling them to Grow, Achieve & Shine.
We are a friendly, community-focussed school and pride ourselves on the provision we offer all children through a highly-inclusive ethos, engaging curriculum, exciting learning environment and creative approach to education. Our website aims to give you just a taster of our school, as well as providing regular updated information for parents and the wider community. Many visitors comment on the ‘feel’ of Churchfield – this is something that can only be experienced in person, so visits to meet our incredible children are always welcome!
My priority as Headteacher is first and foremost to ensure that we keep our entire school community safe and provide opportunities for everyone to thrive: our Golden Rule is clear – ‘We keep ourselves, and each other, safe’. Alongside this, I aim to ensure that we are a forward-thinking and reflective school; always looking for ways to further develop and improve our offer for our children. I passionately believe that every single child has the ability to achieve great things, and it is our job, and professional and moral responsibility to nurture all children in our school to reach their potential and achieve more than they ever believe they could. An essential part of this belief is a commitment to working with parents, our community and other agencies – education is a partnership, and we all have a duty to our children. A common comment from visitors into our school is the positive feel and family atmosphere; that is what our school community is – a family. My door is always open for feedback, discussions or support with parents and you’ll find me on the driveway most mornings if there is anything you’d like to discuss. As someone who was born and raised in our village, I have many fond memories of Churchfield, and feel a sense of moral purpose to ensure that our children receive the absolute best and that success is shared by all. Success can mean many different things, it can be that moment of reflection when a child realises they have achieved something special, scaling a mountain in the Lake District on residential, solving a problem in maths, communicating with someone for the first time, crossing the finish line at cross country or turn-taking in a task. This is all underpinned by a highly-inclusive approach, high standards of behaviour & attendance and a unwavering commitment to the personal development of our children.
As part of the Waterton Academy Trust family of schools, we are supported by a fantastic organisation that shares our values. We joined the trust in December 2019, and since then, the opportunities for our children have been bountiful and our staff have benefitted from a range of quality CPD and networks.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the everything you are looking for. Please feel free to contact us if you would like more information, or visit our Twitter page (@churchfieldprim).
