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.

 24th September 2020 - Update

Dear Parents

The first few weeks of our new school year have flown by and it is difficult to remember a time when we were not here altogether at school. It has been lovely having the whole school community back together again, the children have all grown so tall!

Thank you all for supporting our new one way system around the school site which is in place to reduce congestion around the building.

Soon we will be sending home arrangements for Parent Teacher Consultations along with our initial ideas for Dashain, Harvest Festival and Christmas celebrations.

I hope your children are now settled back into school life, however if you would like to speak to the class teacher or another staff member abut a particular concern please do contact the school office or speak to a staff member at the pedestrian gates at the start or end of the school day.

As we face a few more months living with restrictions around our daily lives please do remember that the Cheriton school community has a big heart and together we will all get through this time of uncertainty. If you have a change of circumstance or need a chat do contact Mrs King or Mrs Boyland our school liaison officers. Equally Mr Evans or myself are always happy to help parents whenever we can.

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. 

 

 Well Done Zachary

Zachary in Year 4 has recorded himself reading a bedtime story, after he found out about the charity ‘Hestia’ from his mum. This charity support women & their children that have had to flee quite unpleasant circumstances. This will be used to play to the young children Hestia support, meaning they have the opportunity of a story they might not of had before.
