About Us

Our moto is ‘Chase your dreams and view your possibilities’ and we are very proud of our happy school with dedicated staff who strive to achieve the best for each child in their care.

Welcome to The Chase View Community Primary School’s website

On behalf of our school, I am delighted that you have chosen to visit us and hope that you find the information available useful. Mr Minott, Headteacher.

We aim to make learning interesting. Chase View sees itself as at the heart of the Pear Tree Community and offers the foundations of an excellent education for life, enabling all to develop as independent, confident, effective and responsible learners through the provision of an enriched and enjoyable curriculum. We regard belonging to our school as something special which is important to all of us. We hope that you and your children will also feel part of our family. 

Staff enjoy working here and children enjoy learning here. It all goes towards providing children with a caring and secure environment, as above all else we want children to feel they are given the opportunity to succeed.


School Vision & Values

We provide a happy, stimulating environment, and encourage each child to reach their full potential and strive for excellence in all areas of school life. We believe in developing pupils’ self-esteem and wonder of nature so that they have confidence to use their individual talents, skills and knowledge effectively and leave Chase View equipped to be lifelong learners.

We value the partnership which exists between school, parents and community and the part it plays in realising this vision.

The Governing Board are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child receives the best possible education. They have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and staff;

Overseeing the financial performance of the school, making sure its money is well spent.

Changes since Ofsted



A new IOG which was discussed and sent to governor services states 10 in total were set up for April 1st 2017.

This was formalised by the LA governor services on March 20th 2017

It states:
a. 2 parent governors
b. 1 local authority governor
c. 1 staff governor
d. 1 Headteacher governor
e. 5 co-opted governors



Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

Every week, they carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England and publish the results online.

Our goal is to achieve excellence in education and skills for learners of all ages, and in the care of children and young people.

They report directly to Parliament and we are independent and impartial.

They aim to be “a force for improvement through intelligent, responsible and focused inspection and regulation”
