Welcome to our School

A warm welcome to Chatburn Church of England Primary School!

At the very heart of our school are our children. We believe that every child is special, unique and loved by God.

Here at Chatburn we take the view that every child really does matter, and we treat all children fairly and as individuals. Although our school has been judged to be ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, we are constantly seeking to improve further.

Our dedicated staff have a breadth of knowledge and wealth of experience to inspire the children with exciting learning opportunities. We believe that good behaviour is crucial to maintain the positive and caring ethos of the school, and our priority is to engage children in their learning, whilst helping them develop a positive attitude towards one another and the school.

Chatburn Church of England Primary School is a place where children are encouraged to achieve their full potential. We are proud of our pupils, and consider it a privilege to serve the parish and local community by giving our children a sound education rooted in Christian values.

Visits to school by prospective parents are warmly welcomed.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

             Tour of Britain

When the Tour of Britain came speeding through Chatburn, the staff and pupils of Chatburn School, along with hundreds of villagers and cycling enthusiasts were there to cheer them on. We had to wait patiently for the race to reach us but it was a beautiful sunny day and it was well worth waiting for.



Chatburn in the Movies!

Class Four have been making their own promotional videos to showcase the best things about Chatburn C.E. School.  They were using iPads and were given a day and a half to plan and finish their video.  They wrote a storyboard script, recorded the videos, downloaded appropriate music and took photographs from around our school, before collating it all together using iMovie.  Children then watched all the videos from the other groups and voted for their favourite one.

Northern Cleft Foundation

After a visit from Dr Bailey from the Northern Cleft Foundation, who told us about their work changing the lives of children in India, we decided to help. We brought our silver pennies to school and decorated a huge smiley face, chalked on our yard. We were surprised and delighted to have raised £200 which is enough for one operation.
