Welcome to Cheapside Primary School
Capturing all that is special about Cheapside Primary School is a difficult task but we hope that our website will give you a taste of what for us is so important and unique.
Cheapside is an Aided Church of England Primary School and, as such, has close links with the Parish Church, St Michael and All Angels, Sunninghill.
The present building was opened on May 6 1964 but there has been a school in the village for well over a hundred years. The school stands in grounds of about two acres, in delightful, secluded surroundings. A beautiful swimming pool, constructed by the parents is in use each summer and apart from the playground, there is a large area of grass for play space and team games and an adventure trail.
Recent building work has considerably increased our interior space providing a large hall for sports, assemblies and performances; four good sized classrooms, a music room, meeting/special needs room, servery, library and administrative areas.
At Cheapside, we believe that children respond best and flourish in an atmosphere in which respect is mutual, trust is engendered and achievements are celebrated. We place great emphasis in developing values which include courtesy, enthusiasm, humour, determination, flexibility and integrity.
We strive to encourage a relationship between home and school, in which family life is enhanced by the promotion of a close partnership between children and staff, parents, governors, church and the wider community.
We seek to develop a thought provoking, vibrant environment which is enriched through a broad and balanced curriculum and extra-curricular activities. We believe that this pays dividends in nurturing a child’s educational development, in an environment where expectations are high, confidence fostered and challenges relished.
At Cheapside Primary School, children should grow both academically and spiritually. They should have an appetite for the pursuit of knowledge whilst growing in understanding of the Christian principles of love, trust, tolerance, forgiveness and fairness.
