Welcome to our wonderful Church of England school – a family in the heart of the community.

It is an honour and a privilege to lead such a happy and inclusive school, where team work and dedication thrives. Our mission here is simple: be ambitious; be curious; be you.

Our Christian values shine brightly in everything that we do: we unite in faith, embrace kindness and uphold honesty and we educate the hearts and minds of our children.

We pride ourselves on loving and supporting our entire community and work closely with St Chad’s Parish Church. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that develops the whole child and challenges them in order to achieve their God-given potential.

2023-2024 will certainly be an exciting time here at St Chad’s, with new initiatives such as our Learning Futures project: enhancing education through the use of digital technology to bring an inspirational and highly ambitious education experience to all children.

I passionately believe that all children deserve the very best education and care and I am committed to ensuring that we provide that here at St Chad’s C of E Primary, in partnership with parents and carers. I thoroughly enjoy working in such a positive and supportive environment and sincerely hope that you and your child’s time here with us prove to be equally happy.

Kindest regards,

Mrs Aitken

(Head of School)


We are privileged to be part of the parish of St Chad’s. This gives us wonderful opportunities to work closely with church and Reverend Rod Clark (Rector). We regularly worship in church together, taking part in Eucharist services as a school family. Harvest, Christmas, Easter, Mothers’ & Fathers’ Day are all greatly celebrated as well as having our ‘big send off’ for Year Six too! We also take part in church events such as the Christmas and Summer fayres, art exhibitions, Samaritans Purse and Lent ‘Acts of Kindness to mention but a few.

We are proud to be part of our wider St Chad family!
