Hello and welcome to Chalkwell Hall Infant school; I am Sarah Clements, the Headteacher. By means of introduction, I am going to tell you a little about our wonderful school. I began working at Chalkwell a long time ago, in 2007, firstly as a Deputy Headteacher and from 2016 as a Headteacher; I love it!
I am extremely lucky to be surrounded by a fantastic, committed, passionate and caring team who you will get to know really well. We work closely together to ensure our school community lives up to our REACH values: Respect, Enjoy, Achieve, Care and be Healthy. We aim to offer all our children a stimulating, exciting and challenging curriculum which inspires them and motivates them to learn; our ultimate aim is to prepare today's learners for tomorrow's world. We value and foster positive personal characteristics as well as academic progress and achievement.
For us to ensure your children do the best they can whilst here with us, it’s vital that we build positive, professional relationships with them and with you. Very soon, we will meet with you all and begin getting to know your child and their family.
Your child starting school is a big deal, we understand and appreciate that. We know that your child is your most precious possession and entrusting them to us might be very scary for some; rest assured we care first and educate second.
I am certain that your journey into school will be an exciting one; we will work together to ensure your child’s transition to ‘big’ school is smooth and happy.
Welcome to Chalkwell and I look forward to getting to know you and your child.
