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.

Superheroes!

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s the reception classes! The children had a fantastic day being superheroes and thinking about their special powers. While the children have had fun learning, the staff and governors have been doing some serious thinking: reflecting on the progress made in the school over the past year; analysing the surveys you completed in December and considering the priorities for the school. Please look at the governing body news on the second page for more information.
The focus on Tuesday for children, staff and parents was also a serious one - the internet: how to enjoy and benefit from using it whilst keeping safe. This raised lots of interesting questions and dilemmas for everyone as change in the use of social media and easy access to the technology has presented challenges for all of us. Although children are mainly accessing the internet from home, the impact of their activi-ty is sometimes felt in school affecting friendships and behaviour – particularly when inappropriate material is viewed. I am hoping to work with a group of parents through the Friends of Chase Bridge to look at ways that we can collectively create a shared understanding of what we think is acceptable use as a community – a standard and an expectation that hopefully we can all sign-up to.
