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

Our school values also promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. To read more about British Values, please click here.

As part of the Dartmoor Cooperative Learning Trust, we also support the Cooperative Trust values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and community solidarity. To read more about our Cooperative Trust values, please click here.

We hope you will find all the information you need about our school on our website, in our Prospectus which you can find under the ‘Info’ tab, and by reading our most recent Ofsted Report (February 2016), but we warmly welcome visitors to the school, as the best way to really appreciate our wonderful setting and happy and thriving community of learners is to visit. We look forward to meeting you!
