Everything we do at Chetwynd is about providing our children with an excellent education and enriching experiences to promote a love of learning. Our aim for our school community is to strive to be better than our best!
We think Chetwynd is a very special place to be because of our wonderful children. We strive to provide the very highest standards of education within a caring, exciting and stimulating environment.
We want our children to be excited by the curriculum and challenged to achieve their full potential. We want our children to enjoy their learning and feel valued. By working closely with our parents and governors, we ensure that all our children have an excellent start to their educational journey.
We hope that our website captures the spirit of Chetwynd and the rich and varied opportunities children receive at our school.
Parents are warmly welcomed to come in and help so please drop in and chat to a member of staff.
Lorraine Tonks (Principal)
At Chetwynd Primary Academy, we are proud to have a knowledge-based curriculum which stimulates our children into asking searching questions, shapes their learning and enables them to develop into independent thinkers and learners. Our curriculum is engaging, exciting and innovative, helping to ensure that our children develop the knowledge and skills they need to excel, and become creative and curious citizens.
Our curriculum has been designed to encompass knowledge and understanding of the world in which we live, and also the events that have shaped it in the past to make it what it is today. The topics have been designed to complement and build on one another with clear progression and links so that in subsequent year groups, they will be able to explore concepts deeper, applying their knowledge in different contexts.
Our community is at the heart of our teaching and learning and topics have been selected to embrace the wider community in which we live - celebrating our diverse family, links with Chetwynd Barracks and our local churches – as well as expanding children's knowledge of events and places they wouldn't ordinarily visit or know about.
Excellent links with the local primary schools and George Spencer enable us to have a good understanding of the students' knowledge and skill levels which helps effective transition.
We are a school who is, and will always be, aiming to be 'Better than our best'.
