About the School
Childwall Church of England Primary School is an oversubscribed and highly regarded ‘Outstanding’ (Ofsted  2013) ‘Excellent’ (SIAMS  2019) school. We are a welcoming, friendly, bright and happy school where Christian values are learned and upheld. It is a place where children feel secure, where good behaviour is expected, where success is celebrated and where children enjoy growing up. Our children are highly motivated and well supported by their parents. We work as a team to secure our vision for continuous improvement.

Our children thrive within a culture of high expectation of progress and attainment for every pupil, according to their individual potential. But, equally important to us is the growth of our children into caring, respectful individuals who embody our core Christian Values of Friendship, Forgiveness, Compassion and Thankfulness. We believe that it is this combination of academic and spiritual development that truly encompasses our school vision and which leads to our school being such a happy and safe learning environment for our children to develop and grow in.
