Cheviot Primary School

Situated in the heart of the Newbiggin Hall estate, Cheviot Primary School, a one-form entry foundation school, provides high-quality education for children aged 3-11 and a provision for 2 year olds. The school is set in extensive grounds offering a school garden, covered learning zones, a large playing field and a host of outdoor learning opportunities. The school also has two additionally resourced centres (ARCs) -an Early Years Assessment ARC and a small group provision for pupils who face social, emotional or mental health challenges. A daily Breakfast Club sponsored by Greggs and Bellway Homes provides a healthy start to the day with social activities and games for children in Year 1 to Year 6.
Cheviot Primary provides a warm welcome, a safe, nurturing environment and a curriculum that ensures children are happy and keen to learn. Our children are expected to demonstrate excellent behaviour, kindness, respect and good manners towards each other, staff and visitors alike.
All children take part in a range of sports activities and are regular participants in tournaments and competitions. There is a wide variety of after schools clubs ranging from hockey and football to dancing and singing. There are regular school trips that enhance the broad and balanced curriculum.
We have achieved a number of awards:
• International School Award
• Silver Eco Schools
• Basic Skills Quality Mark
• LPPA Award
• SEND Inclusion Award
• Healthy Schools Plus Award
At Cheviot Primary our parents are overwhelmingly positive and supportive about their children's education. There is a thriving ‘Friends of Cheviot’ group actively involved in fundraising and supporting enrichment activities and we have well-established links with the community.
The school motto embodies the ethos and climate for learning at Cheviot: ‘Dream, Believe, Achieve’. Our ENRICH values (empathy, nurture, respect, independence, confidence, honesty) encourage our pupils to become resilient learners, respectful citizens and resourceful individuals.
At Cheviot all children access excellent teaching, and a creative, meaningful curriculum leading to consistently high academic attainment and progress across all phases of the school. For further information please visit our Website
