Chalfont St Peter Church of England Academy was built in 1892 and became established as a Voluntary Aided School for the education of 60 poor children in the village, with support from the Anglican Diocese of Oxford. Over the past one hundred years, Chalfont St Peter has maintained its ‘village atmosphere’, and the school has grown, attracting pupils from a wide catchment area. Today, we are a three form entry school, with a total of 360 pupils from Year 3 to Year 6, yet still are able to enjoy being an important integral part of village life.
At Chalfont St Peter Church of England Academy, our Christian faith is the foundation of the belief that every child is special and is entitled to a high quality education which is challenging and fun.
Each child is valued for their individuality and encouraged to develop their full potential, whatever it may be, in a positive, inclusive, caring environment.
To achieve this, all members of our community work closely together to create the learning opportunities which will ensure that our children grow up to be active citizens, with a caring, respectful attitude to the world in which we live.’
“Their behaviour is exceptionally good; they take responsibility, organise themselves well and are caring of each other.”
"Pupils make outstanding progress in all curriculum areas because the school’s Christian ethos encourages all pupils to be aspirational and to reach their full potential."
OFSTED AND THE DIOCESAN INSPECTION
In June 2009, we were visited by Ofsted and Diocesan Inspectors. Both were extremely successful, with the school being described as ‘outstanding’ in both reports.
In July 2014 our Statutory Inspection of Church Schools was conducted with the outcome of 'outstanding' in all categories of inspection.
Full reports can be downloaded from the school website.
“..a visitor is immediately aware of …the hum of enjoyment and industry as pupils around the school learn together.”
