Welcome

Welcome

If you are new to our school we hope you enjoy visiting the website and find the information you are looking for and, in future, that we have the pleasure of welcoming you in person.  We organise school tours for prospective parents throughout the year - please contact us if you would like to know more about life at Chase Bridge or have a look on our Prospective Parents webpage by clicking here.  Click here for an introductory message from our Headteacher, Andrew King.

The school community works closely together to provide exceptional opportunities for our children.  Many of these are recorded on our Facebook page, YouTube channel or in our school newsletters - please take time to have look so you can get a sense of life at Chase Bridge and why it is such a special place.

At Chase Bridge we set high standards of work and behaviour. Our most fundamental principle is that we believe intelligence and ability are not fixed and if our children develop skills such as resilience, resourcefulness, reflectiveness and reciprocity (learning to share and work as a team), they can meet their full potential. We expect all members of the school community - children, staff, parents and governors - to work together to maintain these standards and for children to work purposefully towards achieving their best at all times.  Our school motto is Excel at Learning; Express Your Talents; Care for Others.

Chase Bridge first opened as a Primary School in 1953.  Our location is unique: we have two special neighbours, the Rugby Football Union in Twickenham Stadium and the Royal Military School of Music at Kneller Hall.  We are also close to the Harlequins ground, The Stoop, and many of our families are passionate rugby supporters!  In recent years the school has undergone a programme of expansion and refurbishment to allow us to accommodate additional classes - children, staff and parents are all very proud of our 'new' school!  Today we are a three form entry Community Primary School and nursery in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, with about 640 pupils.

Resolutions

We have been talking about New Year Resolutions in assemblies and in class and all the things we want to get better at this year. The children have come up with an interesting range of thoughts including ‘not being a naughty boy’, ‘getting better at spelling’ and ‘drawing and writing cards to say thank you’.

Ellie’s resolution is to ‘get my homework done on time’; Finley’s is to ‘get better at cutting out pictures’; Tayyab will try to ‘eat less sweets’ and, you’ll be pleased to know, lots of children said they were going to help mum and dad more. One of my favourites was George’s whose resolution is to ‘get better at making sandcastles’! and why not?! We have recorded more resolutions from some of our younger children on our YouTube channel – I hope you enjoy viewing them.

At this time of year the governors, with the school, also look at the things we want to improve and do better at Chase Bridge. You have contributed to this process through responses to the parent questionnaire completed before Christmas. The outcomes of this will be reported back to you shortly and contribute to the overall annual school self-review which identifies our school resolutions, or ‘priorities for improvement’ as they are called in the document. This will be published on the school website in due course. If you want to view the annual review from the previous year please look at the school priorities section on the website. http://chasebridgeprimary.fluencycms.co.uk/School-Priorities
