A very warm welcome from Head Teacher, Bob Duffin

Our school is situated in the centre of Cheselbourne, we have nearly 40 children at the school from Cheselbourne and the surrounding villages. We are excited about learning and all our staff are passionate about providing creative, stimulating and varied activities to get the very best from every child. We strive to prepare children for their future; a future that doesn’t yet exist!

In 2017 OFSTED graded our school as GOOD and noted excellent behaviour and attitudes to learning. I hope you enjoy finding out about our school and how we work together to ensure our pupils are happy, secure and successful.

Our School

Cheselbourne Village School is a First School for children aged 4 - 9 years old, with a pre-school provision for children aged 3 up to school age.  We are part of the Abbas Federation of schools and an active member of DASP. We also hold a weekly parent & toddler group for younger children on Tuesday mornings in the village hall called Scarecrows.

To all our fantastic parents, we would like to encourage you to become our partners in your child's education. Your involvement both in our school & your children's journey through it is integral to helping your child develop a lifetime passion for learning. We have an 'open door' approach to education and we hope you will feel welcome to visit us. Your child's teacher is always glad to discuss points about your child's education and welfare with you.
