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. Click here for an introductory message from our Headteacher, Andrew King.

Chase Bridge first opened as a Primary School in 1953. Today we are a three form entry Community Primary School with about 570 pupils and an attached nursery. Once we are fully three form throughout the school we will have around 680 pupils.  In recent years the school has undergone a programme of expansion and refurbishment to allow us to accommodate the additional classes- children, staff and parents are all very proud of our 'new' school!

At Chase Bridge we set high standards of work and behaviour. 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.

What do you think?

Our annual surveys of parents, staff and children have been completed this week and the outcomes will be presented to governors in February as we review the school's performance, its strategic direction and aspects that we want to further improve.  Thank you to everyone that has completed the survey.  I'm pleased to report that the outcomes were very positive indeed and a number of comments very helpful in our evaluation.  The full survey will be reported in the next newsletter.

You will be aware from a recent letter that we are looking to elect a parent governor to join the governing body.  A letter will be coming home today asking for nominations to be back at school by noon on Friday 6th February.  If you would like to find out more about this role and how you can contribute to the strategic leadership of the school please contact the school office for an informal chat with Mr King or a school governor.

Finally, I would like to congratulate Rachel Scott for becoming a Specialist Leader of Education.  SLEs as they are known, help to provide advice and support to other teachers in their specialist are and many parents will know about Miss Scott's fantastic work with the children in drama, dance and the creative arts.
