Welcome to West Chiltington School
Education should be at once an intensely personal and social experience. Children in the primary phase of learning are among the most creative thinkers on the planet. School must be a place where that creativity can grow and thrive.
As you know, from Thursday this week, we will be going back into a nationwide lockdown. This doesn't currently mean making substantial changes to our safety plan. We have reviewed the plan though and there are some small changes to reflect day to day internal adjustments to our operation. Please click here for our Risk management plan update November 2020
West Chiltington Primary school- prospective parent events Autumn 2020
At this time of year, we usually enjoy welcoming prospective families to our school to share with them what we have to offer. Normally, you could expect a tour to see the school in action and a chance to hear from and ask questions of the head teacher.
This year- those events have to be held virtually. We have produced a short film which we hope will give you a flavour of life here. We are also offering the opportunity to arrange zoom meetings with Julian Rose when you can ask the questions which you need answers to before making that all important decision.
Please contact Valerie in the school office to arrange a zoom meeting.
We are delighted to be opening our doors again to all children. Our aim is to make the reopening of school a happy and supportive time. We will be prioritising the wellbeing of your children and supporting them to re-engage with their friends and with school routines. This will give a firm foundation for catching up with learning which of course is a significant priority. To ensure that school is a safe place for everyone, we have carried out a detailed risk assessment leading to a thorough plan to ensure that everything we do is done as safely as possible. We have tried to keep written guidance as concise as we can and would be very grateful if you would give careful attention to the school routines and risk management document. With the children in mind, we have also produced a short video so that they can see and understand for themselves how things are going to work.
Please contact the school if you have any queries.
