Our school is a primary academy and is part of SMART Multi Academy Trust. Working as part of an academy trust has many advantages, with the main benefit being the dissemination of good and outstanding practice across the trust, in order to improve educational outcomes for children. As a result of working with seven partner schools we are exposed to a range of approaches and we can take the best practice and adapt systems and approaches to benefit the children in Cheviot Primary. The on-going collaboration and high level of accountability between the school and its partners, we are never complacent and continually strive to improve further with our aim to be an outstanding educational provider.
During morning sessions all children have the opportunity to engage in reading, writing and mathematics activities. If additional intervention or support is required for reading, writing or mathematics then this occurs during afternoon sessions in small groups or 1-1 teaching. Since our assessment systems are well established and embedded, we can make assessment judgements quickly and assign intervention and support with immediate effect. This means that any child at risk of not fulfilling their potential is picked up quickly and additional help provided.
Although basic skills form the core of our curriculum we strongly believe that children need a broad and balanced curriculum. Our curriculum is well established and is underpinned by children’s literature, and meaningful and engaging learning contexts, which enable children to develop spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of learning. We adopt a different teaching style during afternoon curriculum sessions, with a greater emphasis placed on interactive learning and practical activities.
All staff, pupils and governors at Cheviot embrace our opportunity to strengthen our school community and improve the outcomes for our pupils and we live and breathe our school motto of 'Dream Believe and Achieve!.
We welcome you to our school and hope that you can be part of our educational footprint into our fantastic and unique school.
