Churwell is a large, vibrant and successful Primary School with around 490 pupils from Nursery to Year 6. At Churwell we have high expectations of achievement and believe in providing all children with the skills for lifelong learning through engaging them in a rich, challenging curriculum within a shared culture of belonging to a school community and mutual respect.

At Churwell Primary, families share in their child’s learning and successes. We believe that working together in a strong partnership is the best way to ensure your child’s success. We expect our children to grow into successful and responsible young people who make a positive contribution to their school and the wider community.

I have the wonderful pleasure of being Headteacher of this happy school where we work in an atmosphere of respect and trust, where each child feels secure and cared for and has a sense of belonging.

During their time at Churwell children will be introduced to a wide variety of learning experiences and curriculum enrichment opportunities. We take pride in our wider community and value each child as an individual, working with families to foster caring attitudes, thoughtfulness, mutual respect, self-discipline and self-confidence.

We have great children who are keen to learn, and an excellent team of staff who go the extra mile and are innovative and supportive, with the children at the heart of everything that they do.

We work hard to ensure that we support our children to become independent, motivated, confident individuals who come to Churwell to learn, aspire and achieve.

I hope that you enjoy the information on our website but if you would like a less virtual experience then please do make an appointment to come and visit.

Mrs Barson, Headteacher
