Headteacher's Message

Welcome to our School

Welcome to our great school! It is a great school, not only because of the recognition it receives but because the children at the school achieve great things.

At Church Drive Primary School we believe that all children have the right to develop to become independent, healthy and confident individuals who achieve the very best that they can. Our aim is to provide a safe, supportive and challenging environment where everybody has the opportunity to reach their full potential as learners. We believe that this can only be achieved if a child feels happy and secure, and our staff work hard to provide this environment for our pupils.

Each child is made welcome as an individual with his or her unique talents, abilities and personalities. We hope that every child will feel at home at Church Drive.

Your support and encouragement is essential to your child’s progress and development, so we look forward to your involvement and commitment in partnership between the school and the home.

As with all effective organisations, the school evolves and develops its philosophies and practices over time and continues its never ending quest for child centred education.

Visitors to our school invariably comment on the ethos of the school (“warm and welcoming” and “respectful”) and the manner in which the pupils are engaged in their learning. Our pupils smile a lot even when the very best outcomes are asked of them educationally, spiritually, morally, socially, physically and culturally.

We hope that you will find this site both informative and interesting, with a clear underlying message of the values and vision, that we feel are important in making Church Drive a special place. However, the best way to learn about the school is to visit us and see for yourself. Please feel free to make an appointment if you would like to learn more.
