About the School

At Chipstead Valley we set our expectations high for ourselves and for our children. We are a larger than average primary school set in beautiful grounds which include a swimming pool, cycle track, outdoor classroom, reading garden, immersive learning suite, woodland, conservation and orchard areas and an award winning, and extensive growing area. We are proud to offer an outstanding and inclusive education both in mainstream classes as well as our dedicated Treehouse class.  Our school also prides itself on outdoor learning, a core thread running through all aspects of our curriculum and we constantly strive to ensure all children have access to all facilities within our grounds. The school is part of PACE Academy Trust, comprising of five schools within Croydon and Merton borough.  As part of PACE Academy Trust, we work alongside four other schools with the mission to provide education and care of high quality in happy, inspiring environments, in which all children and adults are valued and encouraged to succeed. We work collaboratively as a trust on many key areas, including inclusion, with the flexibility and independence to innovate as a school. We have a keen and enthusiastic staff who embrace risk taking and new initiatives. The quality of teaching is high and staff are fully dedicated to raising standards in teaching and learning.
