Christopher Reeves Primary

At Christopher Reeves VA Primary School we provide an education of the highest quality which reflects Christian Values and beliefs, where all children can enjoy and achieve, and develop as confident, caring citizens of the future.

Our vision is to enable every child to flourish in their potential as a child of God; we are wholeheartedly committed to providing a curriculum that is rich and inspiring, and based on faith and the spiritual development of every child.

Our Christian values underpin everything we do in school. Our two year values programme covers 11 values that are explicitly linked with Bible teachings. We focus on each value for half a term in Collective worship and throughout the school day. Children receive recognition for living the values through our celebrations assembly each week and this is communicated with parents through the newsletter.

The school was last inspected by Ofsted in October 2018, when the school was confirmed to be Good in all areas. The Inspection Report said, “There is a delightful atmosphere in lessons and on the playground. Pupils are polite, friendly and articulate.” We were especially pleased that our passion for the natural world has been seen to impact on out pupils: “Pupils like the plentiful opportunities they have to work outside in the school’s wonderful grounds. They are particularly enthusiastic about the forest school that has been developed since the last inspection, because it enables them to develop
teamwork and to learn how to solve real-life problems outside in the natural
environment.”
