Vision and Values

At Chetwynd Junior School we feel that the school should be seen as an extension of the family, serving the community. Typical parent comments on the Questionnaire include; “We are thrilled with the opportunities and learning offered by the school. It is a school we are pleased with. Nothing is ever too much trouble”. We believe that community members, governors, parents and staff should work together in partnership to provide the best possible experience for the children. The school sets high expectations of standards for both the teaching and learning environment.


Ofsted (2013) wrote;


“Teaching is good and outstanding teaching occurs with increasing regularity”.

“Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning and their behaviour is outstanding”.

“Bullying is extremely rare”.

“All groups of pupils achieve well whatever their ability or background”.

“The School is a calm and happy place in which to work”.


We expect the children to behave responsibly and we promote qualities such as high self-esteem and a moral and caring attitude towards one another. We have a well-organised school that provides an interesting and caring environment in which children follow a quality broad and balanced curriculum and have every opportunity to reach their full potential. I believe that the school is a credit to the community it serves.


In addition to this, the school strongly supports British Values;

  • Democracy
  • The rule of law
  • Individual liberty
  • Mutual respect / tolerance of different faiths, cultures and beliefs.
