Our Church School

Although we only opened in September 2017, from the outset, Christian values have been at the heart of all we do and our Christian ethos is very strong.  This can be seen explicitly in the teaching and learning across the curriculum and in the authentic Christian worship and ethos of the school. Our foundation is built on the following Christian values which permeate every aspect of life at the school.


Every child at Bishop Chavasse, is recognised as uniquely created by God, and as staff we seek to nurture each child so that they develop in every area of their lives, from their own starting points. Our aim is that through an exciting curriculum and opportunities for enrichment, children have raised aspirations for all that they can achieve. 


We have strong links with St. Stephen's Church and are proud of the excellent relationship we have with them. We make visits to the church throughout the year for whole school celebrations and class learning and members of the church staff regularly come into school and work with our children and staff.


As a Church of England school we will receive SIAMS inspections.  The principal objective of SIAMS inspection is to evaluate the distinctiveness and effectiveness of Bishop Chavasse School as a church school.


Towards this objective, inspectors seek answers to four key questions.

  • How well does the school, through its distinctive Christian character, meet the needs of all learners?
  • What is the impact of collective worship on the school community?
  • How effective is the Religious Education? (in VA schools and academies)
  • How effective are the leadership and management of the school as a church school?


As a new school, we are continually developing how we demonstrate our distinctive Christian character and have been pleased that visitors to our school have referred to how this permeates in all that we do.
