Information about the school

Churchill Church of England Primary School serves the community of Westerham, a charming market town in Kent. The school, which has approximately 210 pupils on roll, is rapidly improving under new leadership, attaining Ofsted "Good" in Jan 2020, and is situated in amazing grounds.

We are extremely proud to provide a safe and caring environment for our children where they can thrive, whilst promoting Christian and British values. Naturally the children are considered to be our greatest asset, which ensures they are at the heart of our strategic and operational decision making. The school fosters an ethos where our pupils are keen to learn, well-behaved and a joy to teach. We encourage their development into caring and socially minded individuals, who value diversity and inclusion and who actively support the local community and beyond with initiatives; supporting the local food bank and a variety of local charities are just two examples.
