We are a Voluntary Aided Church of England School provided
initially by the Church of England Trustees. This means that we
are controlled by the school governors working in conjunction
with the Local Education Authority. The Headteacher and staff
are appointed by the school governors.
The school is situated in an attractive rural area with good
access to motorways. It is a Church of England Aided school
enjoying excellent links with the local Church and community.
The school mainly serves the local community and new
housing developments in the area. Children from local
playgroups and nurseries feed into the school, with a
significant proportion of them attending Charnock Richard
Pre-school Group, (housed in the Parish rooms).
The school aims to prepare children
for their future by helping
them to reach their full potential in
the school setting, as part of the
Christian family and as members of
the community. In working
towards this aim, the school will
continue to seek:
- To provide the children with an
environment that is both welcoming
- To promote Christian teaching
- To encourage children to be caring and respectful
towards others and the world about them
- To develop and maintain close relationships
between the school, the Parish Church and the
whole village community
- To work towards improving levels of achievement in
all aspects of school life.
All pupils follow the National Curriculum studying the four core
subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Information
Technology; and Foundation Subjects of Design Technology,
History, Geography, Music, Art and Physical Education together
with Religious Education.
A variety of teaching methods are used including whole class
teaching, group work and individual work. The three R’s still
play an important role in the education of children within the
school. The aim of our school is to develop each child to
his/her maximum potential.
All children will follow a programme of study designed to
ensure a broad, balanced and relevant education, meeting the
demands of the whole school curriculum.
The school operates a successful Out-of-School Club between
the hours of 3.25pm and 5.20pm. It is open to all children
attending the school. The facilities offered are excellent, with
two experienced staff operating the club. Parents can book
their child into the club on a daily basis or in advance for the
term. The number of children attending the club continues to
grow and we are very pleased with its success.
Extra curricular activities offered within the school are:
- Tuition in the playing of various musical instruments.
- Opportunities to take part in football, skittleball, cricket,
athletics and rounders.
- Inter-school sports competitions, the majority of which
take place after school hours.
