What Ofsted Says…
Chancel Primary School is a one form entry school with 241 children on roll (September 2017). It is situated opposite St Augustine’s Church in Rugeley town.
“Leaders have maintained the good quality of education in the school. You have taken action to ensure that high-quality teaching, learning and assessment have continued to lead to good and outstanding outcomes for pupils.
Teaching in the school is consistently good or better. The strongest teaching is characterised by teachers and teaching assistants working well together to involve pupils in discussing and improving their work. Teachers provide interesting activities which spark pupils’ curiosity and capture their imagination so that they make rapid progress.”
