School Info

Welcome to Chesswood Junior School.

We look forward to a happy and successful association over the coming years.  Selecting a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make and we will do everything we can to help you. 

We believe mutual understanding and trust between home and school underpins success for every child. There are many questions you will be asking as you look at schools and I hope you will find most of the answers you need on the following pages. In addition, there will be formal events for children and families transferring during normal admission times i.e. September Y3 to extend knowledge and understanding of Chesswood. For the admission of families outside of this time we provide individual support and information to ensure a confident start to Chesswood.

At Chesswood, we strive to work with you to enrich the lives of all the pupils in our care, supporting their development academically, socially, emotionally and physically.  To this end, we endeavour to promote excellence, empathy and equality in all areas, whilst trying to maintain:

  • the precious wonder of childhood
  • ‘awe & wonder’ of the world around them

Both of which can be lost all too quickly in today’s society!

Staff and governors at Chesswood are committed to providing a creative and challenging curriculum so that all children can develop a love of learning that will remain with them throughout their life.  We have worked very hard to develop Chesswood as a vibrant, safe and caring place in which every person matters.  If you talk to the children you will quickly learn that they are very proud of their school.

We do expect very high standards of behaviour and work from the children but that is only part of the picture.  The partnership between home and school is essential if a child is to thrive.  We monitor and track children closely throughout the school and, without a doubt, the children who do best are those whose parents are supporting them and the school.  We welcome parents into school to share in the learning experiences and support them to help their children at home.  Parents are kept very well informed of their child’s progress and liaison between parents and class teachers is very strong.

We think Chesswood is a great place for children to learn and develop as future citizens, but don’t take our word for it; come and visit us and see for yourself.

Best Wishes
Andrew Jolley
