About us

Cheadle Catholic Junior School serves the parishes of Christ Church, St. Chad's, St. Ann and parts of St. John’s and of St. Vincent's, and representatives from those parishes, the Foundation Governors, are involved in the overall management of the school. The Governing Body also includes an Elected Parent Governor and Elected Teacher Governors, together with the representatives of the wider community in Stockport.

The school, through its pupils, its staff and its governors, strives to be a positive force in the life of the Church. It initiates its pupils into a living tradition of faith and maintains the highest ideals with the national educational system. The school seeks to be a witness to the Church and a servant to the Community. Its aim is to work in partnership with parents and parishes to develop each child as a unique being, spiritually, socially, emotionally and physically, to educate the child in the broadest meaning of education.


The general aim is to create an environment where children are taught by example to grow up to be happy, flexible, responsible, independent, creative and adaptable people, showing tolerance among themselves and towards others. We therefore, aim to do the following

  • To encourage the children to be receptive to the principles of Christianity, and the teachings of the Catholic Church.
  • To provide a wide variety of experiences in order to enable children to develop to their full potential in all aspects of their development and to provide for their Special Needs.
  • To educate the children to be aware of and responsive to the beliefs, attitudes and property of others so as to become responsible adults.
  • To foster co-operation between home and school and the wider community.

The governors have a responsibility for the effective management of the school, acting within the framework set by national legislation and by the policies of the local education authority, together with guidance from the Diocesan education authorities. They, too, seek to serve the community and are answerable to you, as parents, for their actions. We hope that by working together we will obtain positive outcomes in the four years in which pupils attend Cheadle Catholic Junior School.

Our Mission

"Our mission is to provide an excellent Catholic Education for all children in our schools." In practice this means that … "We aim to create a happy, learning environment inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus and to provide a broad and balanced curriculum in partnership with parents and our parish communities."


In 1988 the Education Reform Act introduced a National Curriculum for all maintained schools, including our own Catholic Voluntary Aided Schools. The Act set out the subjects that must be taught and the arrangements for testing each pupil's progress. Since then, the contents of each subject, known as The Programme of Study, have been gradually introduced and implemented and the assessments, known as the Standard Assessment Tasks or SATs, have been set for the children aged 7, 11 and 14 years. In additional optional QCA year tests are used to assess pupils progress. Major revisions of the National Curriculum have been undertaken in 1994 and new Orders were implemented September 1998. There was a further revision in September 2000.

What about assessment?

The assessment of the progress of all pupils in the National Curriculum is measured using the ATTAINMENT TARGETS or ATs in each subject, indicating knowledge, skills and understanding that the children have gained. The number of ATs varies with each subject. Details for the core subjects are given below.



Core Subjects

     ENGLISH                      MATHEMATICS               SCIENCE

1. Speaking & Listening      1. Using & Applying Mathematics          1. Scientific Enquiry

2. Reading                            2. Number                                                  2. Life Processes & Living Things  

3. Writing                             3. Shape, Space and Measures                  3. Material and Their Properties        

                                             4. Handling Data                                         4. Physical Processes     


Attainment targets consist of level descriptors of increasing difficulty. Each description describes the types and range of performance that pupils working at that level should demonstrate.


The predicted average attainments for the core subjects are as follows:

                                    at age 7 years   -           about 80% at level 2

                                    at age 11 years  -           about 80% at level 4


The written reports at the end of the school year will give the teacher's assessment of your child's progress in the curriculum and where pupils have taken SATs the levels achieved will be reported. Information on attendance is now a legal requirement. It should be stressed that all such information is strictly confidential.



We aim to provide a balanced, broad and relevant curriculum for all pupils which is in line with the National Curriculum. Equally importantly, we want all children to gain enjoyment and motivation by their successes. During their four years at Cheadle Catholic Junior School all children will encounter a wide range of educational experiences which are carefully planned to cater for every aspect of their development.
