A message from our Headteacher

Welcome to Chaddlewood Primary School.
 
Chaddlewood is a two-form entry school set in extensive grounds in Plympton, on the outskirts of Plymouth.  Our buildings are surrounded by a Forest School area, a beautiful pond, large playing/athletics fields and exciting adventure playground equipment.
 
We believe that Chaddlewood is and will continue to be a special place to learn and work. We are a happy, friendly and welcoming community. We take real pleasure in our successes; both in achievement and attainment, and work hard to support children who may make slower progress or get ‘stuck’ in their learning.
 
The key aim of the school is to produce confident children who are literate and numerate, enjoy a breadth of opportunities to develop a sense of creativity and who have the skills necessary to support their future learning. It is therefore, the development of the ‘whole child’ that we are interested in.
 
 
Our most recent Ofsted inspection which took place in September 2019 and judged us to be a 'Good' school. The inspector said ‘Pupils are enthusiastic about what they learn. They try their best in class, work together and help each other. Pupils value the great many opportunities to get involved in the life of the school. For example, the ‘11 3/4 project׳ outlines fifty activities that staff want pupils to do, either at school or in their life outside of school. A great many pupils do. This reflects staff׳s ambition for pupils to be involved in a wide range of experiences, both for enjoyment and to create memories that will last.
 
With Chaddlewood Pre-School and ‘Woodies’ Before and After School Care on site, and holiday clubs, we are confident that we can provide the full range of child care and continuity of learning that you might want for your child.
 
We are supported by the Friends of Chaddlewood group who work hard to raise additional funds for the school to provide extra opportunities for the children. This is done in a variety of fun ways, including discos for the children, quiz nights for parents and fairs at Christmas and during the Summer Term.
