Curriculum Statement

Learning and Teaching at Chalgrove School


Lifting The Lid

At Chalgrove School we aim to create a place in which passionate and dedicated staff work to develop a culture of creativity, enjoyment and achievement.




It is important that the children, families, staff, leaders, governors and friends understand what it means to belong to our school.  Our prospectus is a snap shot of where we are now; change and adaptation leads us to create new and evolved approaches. We aim to set out what we believe is the best approach to teaching, what we have learned and what inspires us all to keep on improving. The checklists are really for staff, but if you’d like something explained, please ask.


We hope you will get a sense of ‘what we do here’.  If you’d like to visit our school, we’ll eagerly show you what learning and teaching looks like, sounds like and even smells like!
