What is it like to attend this school?

Everybody truly matters at Chepping View. The school is highly ambitious for every pupil to learn a broad range of knowledge and skills so that they can achieve their very best.

Pupils rise to the school's high expectations. Because of this, all pupils, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), attend well and achieve highly by the time they leave the school.

Pupils' behaviour is exemplary.

They live out the school values, the '5 Rs', both in school and in the community. Pupils are polite and well-mannered. A strong culture of respect flows through the school.

In lessons, pupils have highly positive attitudes, focusin...g fully on learning. At social times, pupils play well together, enjoying the wide variety of equipment on offer. Pupils feel safe and secure here.

Pupils love their school. They appreciate the wide range of activities and experiences available to them. Pupils benefit from high quality opportunities that nurture their talents and interests such as visits from professional musicians, a trip to the beach and the chance to learn new skills through regular enrichment sessions.

Furthermore, leadership opportunities are provided for all. Pupils are proud of the positive contribution they make to school life through their leadership roles.

What does the school do well and what does it need to do better?

Everyone at this school strives for excellence.

Leaders and those responsible for governance continually seek to make the school even better. No one is complacent. Staff feel valued and supported well.

Highly effective training ensures that all staff have the skills they need help to pupils achieve highly.

The school's curriculum is designed exceptionally well. All subjects are planned in meticulous detail.

Nothing is left to chance. Right from the start of Reception, the school has identified exactly what pupils must learn to be successful at each step of their education.

Teachers know the curriculum well.

They know exactly what to teach, when to teach it and what pupils need to remember. Teachers design tasks that enable pupils to build and reinforce their knowledge over time. For example, in Reception, children use different resources to build arm strength and to practise drawing the shapes needed for successful handwriting.

When teachers identify that a pupil needs further support with learning, they expertly adapt lessons to help all pupils to keep up. In all subjects, pupils learn to use language precisely, using subject specific vocabulary with confidence when explaining their ideas. For example, in history pupils use words such as disease, squalor and write accurately when explaining the rationale for the introduction of the British welfare state in the 1940s.

The school is determined that all pupils learn to read as soon as possible. Pupils enjoy a wide variety of texts in reading lessons, story time and when learning about other subjects. Pupils are entranced when listening to stories.

Younger children readily join in enthusiastically with familiar words and phrases and older pupils offer well considered opinions when discussing texts. Support for those pupils at the earliest stages of learning to read is highly effective. Pupils read books that are matched well to their phonic knowledge.

Adults ensure that pupils apply this knowledge to read unfamiliar words.

Support for pupils with SEND is a strength of the school. The school is determined to identify pupils' additional needs as early as they can.

This ensures that all children get off to a great start in their education. In addition, carefully designed, bespoke learning is provided for those pupils who need it. This means that pupils with SEND make strong progress through the school's curriculum and achieve exceptionally well.

Right from the very start of Reception, children learn how to behave both in lessons and around the school. This is taught and reinforced explicitly. Everyone understands the school's high expectations for behaviour and applies these consistently well.

Work to support pupils' personal development is strong. The school's 'Learning for Life' curriculum offers an approach to personal development that is bespoke to pupils at this school. This curriculum ensures that pupils learn to keep themselves safe in their locality.

For example, pupils learn how to keep safe around water, including personal survival techniques. Furthermore, in Reception, children have many opportunities to develop their fitness, strength and stamina through using well-chosen resources such as scooters, balance bikes and large pieces of play equipment such as rope and planks of wood.

Pupils are also prepared very well for life in modern Britain.

They understand the importance of showing respect for differing viewpoints, particularly when taking part in discussions and debates. Furthermore, pupils learn about managing finances and have opportunities to volunteer and give back to their school community.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.
