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. Due to small class sizes and skilled staff we are able to offer truly 'individualised, personal learning' This means that every child is able to flourish and their specific needs are closely attended to. We strive to prepare children for their future and a life of learning.

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.

Equality and Inclusion
Cheselbourne Village School wants everyone within our school to feel welcome, valued and included in the school community. We are committed to providing a fully accessible environment to enable this to happen. Our pupils are provided with high quality learning opportunities so that each child achieves all that they can. We want all our pupils to feel confident and have a positive view of themselves. We want our pupils with a disability to access all elements of school life, including school clubs, activities and trips. We recognise that we may have to do things a little differently to make this happen. We are committed to taking positive action in the spirit of the Equality Act 2010, by removing disadvantage faced by pupils with a disability and eliminating discrimination. We will ensure that through whole school training, all staff and governors will be aware of our duties to support children with disabilities, in line with the Equality Act 2010.

Your child's teacher is always glad to discuss points about your child's education and welfare with you.
