Dear Parents and Carers
Cheswardine Primary and Nursery School is a unique school and a unique learning experience. It brings together the strength of its traditions and the vitality of its vision to create an environment that inspires individual achievement.
We are firmly committed to the all round development of the individual, and strenuous efforts are made to ensure that every child fulfills their personal potential, in studies, on the sports field, in service activities and in cultural and recreational pursuits.
Experience shows that when students are involved in the life of the school community they are more likely to identify with its values. Accordingly there is a rich extra-curricular programme in which all children are encouraged to participate, according to their interests and capacities. For some, this involvement will be intense but, as our academic records attest, some of the highest achievers have also been the greatest contributors to school life.
We have never sought to emphasise particular parts of the school programme at the expense of others. Each subject is valued equally and all academic areas are strong. We are particularly proud of our record in the expressive arts, where our school has been awarded a national Artsmark quality award for standards in teaching and learning in the Arts.
