Considering our values here at Chopwell Primary School and Nursery, we encourage our pupils to achieve their full potential and become global citizens of the future. We want to give our children an education of the highest standard, aiming for excellence in all our school activities and encouraging ALL pupils, whatever their ability, to achieve the best they possibly can. We believe that providing pupils with a well-balanced, enriching and engaging English curriculum, will aid them in developing into self-assured communicators.
At Chopwell Primary School, we want our children to be READERS and WRITERS rather than merely able to read and write. We believe that reading is fundamental in the development and education of a child. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that they can be.
Reading develops their brain, provides a window into the world around them and helps them to do better in all school subjects. Most importantly, reading can not only help them to become a good student but a good person.
Here at Chopwell Primary, we ensure that children have lots of opportunities to read in lots of different contexts. We continually strive to promote a love of reading to ensure that pupils are ready for the next stages in their learning.
