Chesterton Primary School is a single-form entry school, set in the heart of Chesterton. Our children are inquisitive, lively, and enthusiastic about their learning.
Our school opened in September 2013 as an academy trust school with its sponsors, The Active Learning Trust. The staff, the Active Learning Trust and Governors are dedicated to the growth and development of the school. Together with the parents, carers and the local community, we work to promote high standards of achievement and behaviour. We place great importance on individual relationships and the benefits that positive relationships can bring throughout our entire school community.
Each day at school we work to achieve our vision of Building aspiration, overcoming barriers and celebrating diversity in our community, learning and relationships. We aim for this through living out our values: Respect; Persevere; Care. Our values run through every aspect of life in our school and form the model of behaviours we expect to see from all members of our community.
We are very proud of the relationships that exist within our community and we work hard to harness links with our parent community. We are grateful for the support we receive from SOCS (Supporters of Chesterton School), our PTA. We are hopeful that annual events such as our Christmas and Summer Fairs, will be able to take place in the 2022/23 academic year.
Chesterton Primary School continues to be rated as a “Good” school by Ofsted, following our inspection in February 2020. Our team of staff are committed to the school and its community; we work hard to ensure our children are safe, secure and happy whilst at school, as well as achieving their potential in all areas of their learning and relationships. Our school is part of the Active Learning Trust, which has schools across Cambridgeshire and Suffolk. We benefit from being part of this family of schools through the personalised support on offer from the central team.
On our website you will find information regarding the school, our staff, the curriculum and our policies. I am keen to work with our community and to explore the dual benefits that partnerships can bring. We do work with a number of local volunteers, who offer classroom support throughout the week. If you would like to become involved in this, or if you have any questions about our school, please contact the school office.
