It gives me great pleasure as Headteacher Chilton Academy to welcome you to our school and introduce our friendly, busy and exciting school community. I hope that by using our school website you will get a picture of our vision, aims and the values that make us a special place to be.
From the moment that you step into Chilton you will find us to be a caring school, full of happy, friendly children who are polite, engaged in their learning and evidently proud of their school and achievements.
We have high expectations at Chilton Academy and our staff work hard to ensure that all children are encouraged and supported in developing good cooperative learning behaviours and the social skills to equip them for the journey ahead of them. We believe that all children can succeed and achieve.
We know that a strong partnership between home and school is the best foundation for a positive and successful education. Our parents and carers share this view and we work together to make each child’s experience as fulfilling as possible ensuring highly successful outcomes for all of our children.
We are extremely proud of our school, which occupies one of the largest sites of primary schools in Durham—our school is situated in the heart of the village. We are lucky enough to have an abundance of outdoor learning space and an impressive gymnasium, computer suite, science lab and fully-equipped stage in our beautiful school hall.
We warmly welcome visitors and hope to meet you soon.
With best wishes
