If you are thinking of moving to Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford for the family it is important to take a look at schools in the area. A couple of Primary schools in Chigwell are small and have a real village feel to them, perfect for primary school kids.
Chigwell Row Infant School, Lambourne Road, Chigwell, Essex, IG7 6EZ has been described as; “a good village school with great ethics. Would highly recommend this school to everyone”. They aim to provide a safe, secure, stimulating & happy environment where everybody is respected & valued as an individual. They encourage children to meet the challenges of life ahead by fostering positive attitudes, self-esteem & confidence.
They say they want to encourage each child to fulfil his or her potential, to be capable of independent work & to be able to co-operate with others thus developing a lifelong enthusiasm for learning. While providing first-hand experiences which will enhance pupils’ learning through a broad & balanced curriculum which meets the needs of individual pupils.
There is also Chigwell Primary Academy, it is a one and a half form entry primary school. The school became an academy on 1st September 2015, joining the REAch2 Academy Trust family of schools. They say “As a school, we strive to ensure that every child develops an understanding of our key values (Respect, Responsibility and Resilience) and develop the skills needed to apply these to their learning and all aspects of their life.”
Epping Forest Schools Partnership Trust says “The overarching objective for the Trust is to support our schools in being welcoming, caring, calm and purposeful; schools which will stretch our young people academically, support them pastorally and help to develop them socially, emotionally and spiritually.” They want each Academy to retain its own distinct voice and identity but have efficient and effective central services, strong leadership and management of Chigwell Primary Schools.
