Chiltern Primary School was formed in September 2004 and has the capacity to take 210 children. Each year group can take up to 30 children. The children are organised in classes according to numbers, ages, abilities and needs. Each class has a minimum of 15hrs a week of support from a Learning Support Assistant.
The school is accommodated in a 1960’s scola building and a new extension. The scola building was completely refurbished as part of the building works.
As well as teaching bases we have a school library, an art room, food technology area, music room, art room and a learning support room. Each teaching base is equipped with an interactive whiteboard and internet computers. The children are actively encouraged to use all forms of ICT to enhance their learning. We are a school that encourages children's creativity to help them learn and their work can be found displayed all around the building.
The school grounds also develop the children’s learning by providing a stimulating, interesting and active environment. We have recently installed some new wooden play equipment onto our field to encourage the children to be active while having fun and thoroughly encourage their engagement in activities such as art club or lego club during break times.
We encourage the children to take an active role in the school by being members of a School Council, undertaking monitor roles and having the opportunity to become Young Leaders. Our Year 6 pupils also have the opportunity to become school prefects, affording them a fantastic chance to become a responsible member of our school team.
