Welcome to St Chad’s Church of England Nursery and Infant School
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you on behalf of our children, parents, staff and governors to our school's website.
St Chad’s is a small school with a big heart. We are proud of our school's history as a Church of England school and the strong links that we have with our local community and St Augustine's Church. In 2019, we became member of the Derby Diocese Academy Trust family (DDAT). There are 120 children in school, aged between 4 and 7, plus a 26 place morning Nursery.
Life at St Chad’s is fun and filled with exciting and memorable learning. Our school vision, LOVE God LOVE Neighbour LOVE Self, sits at the heart of our school and underpins every aspect of school life. We are an inclusive school and our vision, though distinctively Christian, welcomes and values all faiths and cultures within our diverse school community.
We aim to develop happy, confident, loving and caring children who look after and value themselves, each other and their world. Every child is known and cared for as an individual. We want every child in our care to feel valued and special and flourish with their unique God-given talents in all that they choose to do.
We value strong home-school partnerships and significant time is spent getting to know our families from their very first day in school. We strive to create a peaceful and family orientated atmosphere, underpinned by our mantra: calm, still and quiet.
We take advantage of our small workforce and our children are nurtured by a friendly, enthusiastic and supportive school team.
The photographs and information on this website give a good insight into life at St Chad’s but there is nothing like coming along to experience the real thing for yourself! If you would like to visit us then please do get in touch through the school office.
We look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful school.
