Welcome ...

 

Ms A Maxted and the staff welcome you to the website of Cheriton Primary School, the school is situated on the western edge of the seaside town of Folkestone, Kent.

Cheriton is a friendly school community, where adults work to ensure every child fulfills their potential. We enjoy having a positive relationship with our local community and this ensures our children have a very broad and exciting learning experience.

Please use the links above to 'look around' the school, but better still, do contact the school office to make an appointment to visit in person.

For those families moving to the Cheriton area please do contact the school office who will be able to give you up to date information on school admissions during this time of Covid restrictions.

This year we are sad that we are unable to host our usual tours of the school for prospective parents. So instead, two of our very talented staff have filmed a normal school day for you all to see what the children get up to after their Mums and Dads have gone home!

If after viewing the film prospective parents have any questions please do email - headteacher@cheriton.kent.sch.uk and a senior member will arrange a telephone appointment to the needs of your child with you.

The KCC application portal is now open for Year R applications for September 2021.

 OFSTED Inspection- October 2019

Cheriton Primary School has been one of the first schools in Kent to be inspected under the new Inspection Framework that came became statutory in September 2019.

The opening paragraph of the report captures all that we strive for here at Cheriton and are delighted that OFSTED recognises this.

"Pupils of all cultures and backgrounds thrive in this friendly and welcoming school. They are exceptionally well cared for and nurtured.

One parent said: ‘Cheriton is a place where every child matters and is valued.’

Pupils are very happy at school. They respect and get on well with their teachers. 

Leaders and staff want the very best for all pupils’ academic and personal achievements. Pupils enjoy learning because teachers make it interesting.

The school motto of ‘Learning to Live’ drives all that the school does."

After the report was published the children had a special film afternoon to celebrate all their hard work.

Do take time to read the complete  OFSTED report that can be found via this link.
