The Cippenham Schools’ Trust
On 1st April 2012 Cippenham Infant School joined with Cippenham Primary School and The Westgate School to form the first Multi-Academy Trust in Slough, known as The Cippenham Schools’ Trust.
We are very excited about the opportunities being an academy will bring not only to our own delightful school but across the Trust, working in partnership with a primary school and a secondary school. The Headteachers of all three schools have been working to formulate our vision for the Trust and to scope out a three year action plan to help our schools share and develop expertise, and to provide the very best education and expereinces for all young people attending schools within the Trust.
Cippenham Infant School is fortunate to have dedicated, highly professional staff who work hard to ensure that children receive an outstanding education and outstanding personal care. We pride ourselves on providing a warm, caring and nurturing ethos, where all the community feel valued and have a voice.
The new look Local Governing Body are keen to help the school go from strength to strength and will be working in partnership with the Trust Directors.
An active Parents’ Group ensures that funds are raised to support the school with purchasing equipment to enable the children to make the most of their learning.
Our belief is that we only get one chance with the children we teach and it is paramount that we do all we can to meet the range of diverse needs with which we are presented. No matter the educational or physical ability we aim to reach every child in our care.
We work closely with parents and believe strongly that we are a partnership in supporting children’s learning and development; this forms the basis of our school motto: ‘Believe and Achieve Together’. Each term we hold ‘Families in…’ sessions whereby parents and grandparents can work alongside their own child/ren in class; we hope that this will help parents to support their child/ren at home.
I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful school should you choose to visit. Meanwhile enjoy the website and please open this link to read our last Ofsted report: Ofsted 2008
