Headteacher’s welcome

Pupils from Christleton Primary School

May I take this opportunity to welcome you to Christleton Primary School website. Parents want the best possible start in life for their children. Choosing the right school is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. All parents will understandably look for a school with the right mixture of high educational standards and an environment where their child can be happy, thrive and succeed. We believe that Christleton Primary School is such a school.

Set in the heart of the village of Christleton, just outside the historic city of Chester, we are a successful and inclusive school. Our motto is ‘Be the Best You can Be’ and we aim to provide a warm and caring environment where everyone has the opportunity to shine and fulfill their potential.

In partnership with the governors and parents, all staff constantly strive to give the children the best possible education and to provide opportunities for pupils to reach the highest possible standards in all areas of school life in a safe, secure and caring environment. The curriculum is rich, child-centred, interesting and exciting, whilst also being aspirational and always offering our pupils a challenge. A wide range of physical and musical activities are enjoyed by our children. Pupils are encouraged to work from first-hand experiences which develop their interest and motivate their learning by giving them a sense of purpose for their work.

It is our shared belief that education should be an exciting journey and that every child should leave our school with a love of learning that will remain with them throughout their lives. As our pupils develop we encourage them to take responsibility for their own learning and in doing so, become more independent in thought and action. Confidence and self-esteem is raised through success and praise for effort and achievement, developing a positive attitude to school and education.

The staff, governors, parents and pupils are extremely proud of our school and the way that everyone works together to make it a happy place to work and learn. Our school website provides an insight into the values and routines of school life, but a visit to the school gives you the opportunity to see these in action. I encourage you to make an appointment and come and see and feel for yourself the nurturing and inspirational ethos we have developed.

Please look around the site and if you need any more information, or we can help in any way, please contact us and we will get back to you shortly.

Kind Regards

Oliver Mitchell
