Our Vision

Chilwell Primary is a school that prepares students for life.

Our students strive to achieve their full potential by being engaged, focused and enthusiastic learners. Our staff inspire, engage and nurture students through a dynamic curriculum that supports the academic, social and emotional wellbeing of each child.

Our Values

Kindness: Kindness is being considerate to yourself and to others. Kindness comes from engaging positive emotions to help us be accepting, compassionate and caring.

Respect: Respect is a positive and considerate way of treating or thinking about someone or something. When people are insulted or treated badly, they have not been shown respect. It is so important that we have respect for ourselves, others and the environment.

Resilience: We know everyone has to cope with ‘ups and downs’, and we are looking to use a growth mindset to overcome and cope with life’s daily challenges. We want to be able to deal with problems and issues and build up our strength from the inside.

Persistence: To persist is to continue to try and to be determined. Being persistent calls on self-belief, hope and courage. This allows us to be determined and to have a strong purpose in what we do.
