Charlton Church of England Primary School is built upon a tradition of providing quality education within a kind and caring ethos. As a voluntary aided Church School we strive to promote the values of our Christian faith through our links with the Church and in our daily life. We hope to achieve our aims through partnership between governors, staff, children, parents and parish.

We provide a wide range of learning opportunities for all children to help them to grow into independent and responsible young people. We firmly believe that we can only achieve the best for your child by a close co-operation between home and school. There will be many opportunities for you to share in your child’s education and teachers are always willing to talk with you about any aspects of your child’s development.

We hope that you will share with us in making this a happy and successful period in your child’s life.

Carole Barrett





Our school aims to:

Promote Christian values and to provide opportunity for the worship of God.

Achieve high academic standards.

Ensure each individual reaches his/her potential by encouraging independent learning.

Develop a community spirit through partnership between home, school and wider community.

Enhance self esteem.

Work as a team.

Provide a supportive, caring environment.

Promote the development and understanding of social values, recognising others’ needs and viewpoints.

Constantly monitor and review all we do.


The National Curriculum is taught from Year 1. The curriculum areas that are covered include Literacy, Numeracy, Science, ICT and RE and the foundation subjects Geography, History, Art, Design Technology, PE and Music. Each day children follow programmes of work which form the literacy hour and numeracy hour. These subjects are given national guidelines which all schools must follow.

At the end of each key stage children undergo national SATs testing. These tests should help you to assess the progress made by your child during their years at primary school. They may also help you to measure their attainment against other children of the same age. The National Curriculum is set out in different `levels', Level 1 is the first level. An `average' child would be expected to achieve Level 4 by the time they leave primary school. You will be given your child's test results at the end of the summer term. The National Curriculum does not cover all the work which children do. You will often find them covering other work as well. Sometimes, in some subjects, children will go over work covered before. The second time it will mean studying the subject in more detail.


Children in our Reception Class will follow Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Detailed information about the curriculum covered in each class is given at the beginning of each year.

Throughout the year we enhance the curriculum with exciting themed weeks and trips out.

We have school policies on all curriculum subjects which are available for you to see. These are constantly being reviewed and updated.

Our aim is to ensure every child fully develops their physical co-ordination and competence. We also aim to help children develop socially through competition and co-operation with other individuals and groups. We offer a range of sporting activities including swimming in KS2.

We have a netball and football team who meet once a week after school for training and coaching sessions. We hold a Sports Week each year during the summer term. Many new sports are arranged and everyone begins the day with exercise. Sports clothes are worn all week.

Special Needs

At Charlton School all children are important. All children are valued equally and are given the same access to the National Curriculum. We assess children's knowledge and abilities and provide appropriate teaching strategies in order to meet the children's needs. Mrs Pam Maycox is the person responsible for co-ordinating the day to day provision for pupils with Special Education Needs (SEN) Targets and work programmes for these pupils are drawn up under the "Code of Practice”.

Out of School Activities

We provide a range of activities which may vary from term to term. We have netball, football, computers, French, recorders, gardening, dance, book club, science club, art club and craft club and cricket club.

Admissions Policy

What do I do if I would like a place for my child at Charlton?

Make an appointment to see the headteacher. You will be shown around the school, meet the children and staff and have an opportunity to ask questions. Nearer to the time of admission, you will be sent an application form to complete and return.

Graphic: Checklist

Currently the governors have an admissions policy which is applied when the number of children wanting to join the school exceeds the spaces available.

Our standard admission number is 30 children per year.

Priority is given to-

Children who are in the care of the Local Authority.

Attendance by the child and member of the family/godparent once a month at a Christian church affiliated to the Church of England, with a reference from the resident incumbent

Children who have brothers or sisters already in school.

Children or parent with medical or compassionate needs whose application is supported by an appropriate reference.

Children of former pupils who live in the parish.

If all children in the above categories have been admitted, places still available will be offered to children living nearest the school.

The law states that children should start school in the term after their fifth birthday. At Charlton we have one intake in September when the children either start full-time or part-time depending on their date of birth. This policy is reviewed annually.

The governors believe that our admissions procedure underpins our improving standards. They wish to ensure that continuity of education continues for every child who comes to the school. Therefore it is the governors' wish that if a parent chooses to remove a child to another school, then children of the same family who are on the waiting list for admission will lose that place. The governors feel that on both educational and social grounds it is best for children to attend school as a family group whenever possible. This does not apply to children who leave to attend special schools such as Portal House, Harbour School or children who leave in their last year at school.


We like our children to look smart so we expect all children to wear school uniform, clearly named. Jumpers, cardigans, fleeces, t-shirts and caps are sold exclusively through school, please complete an order form and return to the school office.

School uniform is as follows:

Boys – grey/black trousers, white shirt, school tie, maroon jumper, school fleece and black shoes.

Girls – grey skirt/trousers, white blouse, school tie, maroon cardigan/jumper, school fleece and black shoes.
