Inspiring a Lifetime Love of Learning

Welcome


 

A very warm welcome to Cheselbourne Village School!

Cheselbourne Village School may be small in size, but it is big on what it offers the children who attend. Our lovely, rural first school and pre-school supports around 50 children from the surrounding charming Dorset villages of Cheselbourne, Ansty, Melcombe Bingham and Hilton. It also offers places to children from further afield.

At Cheselbourne we are Proud to be a Small School with 'Equality' at the heart. We are excited about learning and pride ourselves on our extremely passionate staff, who take advantage of our smaller classes to provide creative, stimulating and exciting learning opportunities designed to support every child in achieving their full potential. All of this is done in a nurturing, safe and fun environment, where strong friendships are forged and children gain a love of learning that will last them a lifetime. 

In 2017 OFSTED graded our school GOOD and our positive report states:

‘Pupils are enthusiastic about learning. They welcome visitors warmly, are keen to share their work and speak confidently about their learning and what they need to do to improve further. They focus well in class and are respectful of others’ views and responses. Pupils enjoy school. One parent, typical of many, commented that her children ‘run into school in the morning’.

I hope you enjoy finding out about our school and how we work together to ensure our pupils are happy, secure and successful. As well as visiting our website please come and meet us, follow us on Facebook, phone or email! We look forward to hearing from you.

Mr C Perry
Headteacher

Our school


Cheselbourne Village School is a first school for children aged 4 to 9 years old, with a pre-school provision called Caterpillars Preschool for children aged from 3 years up to school age. We also hold a weekly parent & toddler group for younger children and their grown ups called Scarecrows on Tuesday mornings in the village hall.

 

 

‘Inspiring a Lifetime Love of Learning’

 Our aims

During their time at Cheselbourne Village School all children will:

Have fun in their learning and play.

Know how to respect everyone.

Learn to be kind and share.

Develop great vocabulary, number and computing skills.

Learn how to look after our world.

When children leave Cheselbourne Village School they will have an amazing future because of everything they have learnt here.

Our aims and values were developed by our school student voice and underpin all that we do here at Cheselbourne Village School.

At Cheselbourne Village School our primary aim is to create a happy and safe environment in which every child can grow intellectually, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Children are encouraged to become independent, confident, thoughtful and caring individuals. We provide a broad and balanced curriculum to enable every child the opportunity to develop their abilities so that they can reach their full potential. We also ensure the environment is stimulating and challenging. We expect high standards in both work and behaviour and we want children to enjoy their learning and to approach everything with enthusiasm. Each child has uniquely different characteristics and abilities. This supports why we are proud to be a small school.

Whilst at Cheselbourne we believe that all children will:

Develop lively enquiring minds with an enthusiasm for learning.

Acquire knowledge, attitudes and skills relevant to their future.

Understand the world in which they live, our interdependence on others and on our environment.

Use language and numbers effectively in a variety of ways and situations.

Develop a respect and tolerance for the diversity of all people.

Develop a respect and tolerance for other people’s views and different races and religions.

Develop the ability to question and to apply themselves to set tasks.

Actively participate in the life of the school, the village and the local community.

When children leave our school we sincerely hope that they are able to approach the next phase of their education with confidence and with an enthusiasm to pursue a lifetime love of learning.
