Chawson Community First School
Wyche Road, WR9 8BW Droitwich

Children are normally admitted to the self-contained Reception Unit at the beginning of the school year in which they are five, i.e. they are four years old by 31st August. The children are grouped according to age and will usually comprise three classes of Autumn, Spring and Summer birthdays respectively.

The Worcestershire County Council information for parents booklet available from the Admissions Office (Tel: 763763) or directly from the school (773264) gives details of the applications process.

Parents will need to complete form PA1 (again available from the school) as soon as possible, but by the first week of February before a September admission date at the latest. Advice on this is gladly given via the school secretary of Headteacher.

Pupils transfer to their next school at the end of Year 4 (in September after their ninth birthday). The local middle schools are Witton and Westacre.

Chawson First School is a feeder for Witton Middle School, which is on an adjoining site.

The Buildings and Grounds
Chawson First School has many first-rate facilities. Indoors, there are fifteen spacious, well resourced classrooms, a library, a computer suite, group teaching areas, mini-libraries, medical room and two halls, both of which are fully equipped for physical activities.

Each of the younger age classes has their own brightly decorated toilet facilities

Outdoors, there are three playgrounds with outdoor play equipment, an environmental studies area, a sports field, a sensory garden and many areas used for teaching.

The amount of available space means there is room for everyone although, to enhance this, break times are staggered to ensure that all children can thus enjoy their choice of activities.

There are additional buildings, including the Safe Hands facility which provides out of school care for children whose parents are unable to collect them at normal times.

At lunchtime there is a full hot meals service with a wide range of choices.
There is an on-site security and CCTV system.

We see parents as partners with us in their child's education and try to have an open, honest and constructive relationship based upon our common goal of acting in the child's best interests. Parents are welcome to approach the school at any stage of the school year with queries relating to their child.

Voluntary Helpers and Other Adults

Chawson First School has a strong band of helpers in school. Such assistance is invaluable. A number of School Governors are regular visitors and help in classrooms.

Chawson First School Association

As a parent of a pupil in school you are automatically a member of the Association. The committee meets about once a month and plans a lively and varied programme of events.


To keep all parents and other parties up to date and informed about the many aspects of life in a thriving school there is a weekly newsletter. This is not only a diary of events and announcements but also a chance to air a range of issues.
