Welcome to Chagford Church of England Primary School and Preschool

Love Life, Love Learning


Our vision at Chagford Church of England Primary School is to build a strong foundation for every child so that they are well prepared for their life ahead. We believe that every child needs to feel that they belong, that they matter, and that they are valued for their unique qualities. As we learn about who we are, our relationship to each other and to the wider world, we nurture strong values, underpinned by our Christian ethos, in order to bring about the best possible future for ourselves, our communities and future generations. At Chagford, our values inform our aims, and help us to be:

  • C onfident learners
  • H ealthy in body, mind and spirit
  • A ble to work well together, learn from, and support each other
  • G lobal citizens, making an active contribution to our communities
  • F ree to be ourselves and develop our unique skills and talents
  • pen minded and respectful of difference and diversity
  • R eflective and thoughtful
  • D etermined, resilient, and resourceful, with a positive mindset
