A very warm welcome to our school’s website. At Chapel Haddlesey we care about each individual child and we are passionate about the education that they receive in our care. We are proud of our child-centred approach to learning, our engaging curriculum and our commitment to our ‘educating the whole child’ ethos, with Christian values at our core. We work hard to give our children a variety of experiences to enable them to develop high aspirations for their future.

At our school we believe that children are better able to reach their full potential when we work in effective partnership with parents and carers. To that end, we actively encourage family engagement in school life, ensuring that our children are challenged academically, inspired creatively and supported and fostered in their emotional development. We believe that with this balance, our pupils develop the self respect and self esteem they need to succeed in life.

Being a part of the Chapel Haddlesey family is a real privilege. Hopefully this website will give you a small window into our school. If you’d like to see more of what Chapel Haddlesey has to offer, we would be delighted to welcome you and to show you around our school.

  • Accounting for the performance of the school and Governing Body.
  • Working with the Headteacher to make sure that teaching at school is effective and good quality and the children are making the best possible progress.
  • Taking general responsibility for the school and its budget.
  • Challenging and supporting the Headteacher and taking opportunities to show interest in and appreciation of staff and pupils.
  • Promoting the interests of the school and its pupils in the wider community.

There are several different types of Governor:
