Thank you for visiting the website of Chalfont St Giles Village School., I hope you find the information here useful.
Chalfont St Giles Village School, located in Buckinghamshire, in the heart of the Chilterns, was formed in 2011 and is a Hard Federation between Chalfont St Giles Infant School and Chalfont St Giles Junior School, which was formed in 2011.
The school has a caring ethos based upon nurturing principles where children are encouraged to take responsibility for their learning and embrace challenge.
Our vision “Happily Achieving Together - Nurturing Success” underpins our belief that every child has skills and talents that will develop and blossom in our challenging, dynamic and supportive environment.
The school has a proud tradition of high academic standards as well as focusing upon the development of the whole child through providing opportunities and success in many spheres of school life.
We offer a well-balanced and stimulating curriculum that encourages children to develop a positive attitude to their learning. Teaching and learning are engaging, relevant and responsive to current events, bringing the world into the classroom. We set high standards and have high expectations for all our children, both in their learning and behaviour. We strive to ensure that all cultures, faiths and backgrounds are embraced and children show respect for each other and the school.
We aim to ensure our pupils develop enquiring minds and acquire the relevant skills, attitudes and knowledge, including a life-long love of learning, to prepare them as they progress in their education. We also encourage a healthy attitude towards physical activity, diet and emotional well-being.
The school benefits from a dedicated and hard-working staff who work closely with the parents, pupils and other stakeholders to ensure the school is constantly looking to improve and create the very best learning environment for all those within our school community. The school is also active in the local community.
Visitors to our school often comment on the supportive, caring atmosphere and respectful, warm interactions between all members of our community. If you are interested in finding out more about our school first hand, please come and visit us.
A Hard Federation is where two or more schools operate under one governing body and a single headteacher while keeping their own identities in respect of budget, admissions and performance.
