Churchfield Primary School

Grow Achieve Shine

Academy Standards Committee (ASC)

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Churchfield Primary School on behalf of the ASC.

The role of the ASC is an extremely important one. We work very hard as a team alongside the staff, management, parents and pupils to ensure that Churchfield Primary School provides the education your child deserves. We also monitor the safety and welfare of our children and strive to create an open, caring and inclusive atmosphere where everyone feels valued.

We are extremely proud of the achievements of our children and of the high standards maintained in both learning and behaviour. It is our role to support and encourage the Head teacher and all staff to ensure each individual pupil has the opportunity to make progress as they move through school.

I am always available to discuss matters relating to school and can be contacted via the school office:
