Chesswood Junior School

Dream, Aspire, Achieve Academy

Our desire is that the whole school community supports us in realising the school motto for ALL children at Chesswood.

'Dream, Aspire, Achieve'

This motto, along with our curriculum drivers 'Life Opportunities' and 'Creativity, Confidence & Competence' underpins all we do within and beyond the curriculum. 

The Dream, Aspire, Academy is designed to promote, inspire and wherever possible provide key experiences, opportunities, life skills, and wider knowledge  that we believe all children should have access to in their time at Chesswood (both within and out of school). They are designed as a starting point to encourage our community to engage in enriching activities that add further to the curriculum offer through school. We'd love families to engage and enjoy participation in the ideas below - and add ideas of their own to inspire others. 

Our recently held STEM workshop in February 2023 was a great success for some of our children, providing a totally new experience and opportunity for them. Seeing their faces and hearing their responses is why these days make such an impact on our children's everyday lives. Please see some of the comments below from the children 

                      'I would like to build a real hovercraft when I am older and want to do more days like these'

  'I really enjoyed STEM morning it was the best part of my weekend'

'Where do you want me to start, it was all great! We made a hovercraft and rode on it reducing friction was how the hovercraft moved using hand power'
