We know that many of you will be wanting to see what primary schools have to offer as you consider where your child may start Reception next September.
If you weren't able to join us at our open evening, please have a look at our 'Virtual Tour' video so you can see what we have to offer at Christ Church.
Also included below is a copy of the presentation from our open evening. If you have any questions, then please do give us a call - we would love to hear from you!
By joining Christ Church, you are becoming part of a school that has learning at the heart of everything we do. Not only do our children learn in a caring and supportive environment, they also excel academically.
If you look at the last published figures from assessments taken in May 2023, for pupils meeting the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined - we far out perform other schools nationally.
When Ofsted last visited us in 2022, they praised the school for having high expectations and noted:
Leaders and staff expect all pupils to achieve highly and behave well. In lessons, pupils listen attentively. They are keen to learn. This helps them to achieve well across the curriculum.
Pupils take pleasure in playing an active and responsible role in the life of the school, such as being house captains, school ambassadors and members of the eco club.
Leaders have ensured that the curriculum is suitably ambitious for all pupils, including children in the early years. Leaders have carefully identified the important subject knowledge that they want children and pupils to learn from the early years to Year 6. Leaders have designed subject curriculums so that pupils can build their knowledge in a logical order. Children in the early years are well prepared for the demands of Year 1. Pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), achieve well across a range of subjects.
Leaders ensure that reading is a high priority. Children start to learn phonics as soon as they start in the Reception class.
Staff develop positive relationships with pupils. Leaders and staff establish clear routines which pupils follow diligently.
Leaders place a strong focus on supporting pupils’ well-being. Leaders ensure that the curriculums to promote pupils’ personal development contain many opportunities to develop their confidence and resilience. Pupils learn about other faiths and cultures and visit different places of worship. They spoke knowledgably about British values, such as democracy, individual liberty and the rule of law. Pupils are well prepared for life in modern Britain.
