Welcome from our Headteacher


I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all our children and families at Chapel Break Infant School. I am very proud to be your new Headteacher and look forward to meeting you all soon.


Chapel Break Infant School is an exciting place to be.  When you visit us, you will feel it as soon as you walk in the door! We offer all our children the opportunity to dream big and develop a true love for learning in a safe and nurturing environment.


The Chapel Break Creative Curriculum is special. It offers unique experiences that support every child in reaching their true potential and has resulted in outstanding outcomes. It is rooted in our belief that all our children will thrive in their later life if we provide an ambitious, thoughtfully planned and structured, knowledge-rich, creative curriculum. At the heart of our curriculum is our belief that the children’s mental wellbeing must always be our priority and we are currently embedding the Thrive approach across the school to support the whole school’s social and emotional development.


We have a number of very exciting learning environments at Chapel Break, which all children will access regularly.


The Big HeART studio is an innovative learning environment at the centre of our school. It is as much an approach to deep learning as it is a studio. Here, children will build a knowledge and experience of the visual arts beyond those that can be offered within the usual classroom setting.  The learning consists of the development of a range of skills, including speaking and listening, debate and discussion, a variety of thinking skills, social skills, independence of thought and action and persistence.


Our outdoor classroom, the copse area and our allotment provide further opportunities to enhance our curriculum and we have recently appointed a qualified Forest School practitioner to lead the outdoor learning.


We hope to work with you in partnership, to ensure that we provide the best possible education for your children. We also have strong links with the community and are once again looking forward to arranging visits out and inviting visitors into school.


I hope you feel inspired to come and visit our school and meet our wonderful children. If you have any questions, please call the school office or email me at
