Chipping Ongar Primary School


I just wanted to place on record my sincere thanks for the outstanding provision and support that was offered to all the children during the most recent lockdown.  My children both attended the hub as I am a key worker and they absolutely loved every single second of it.  During these very uncertain and anxious times it is not surprising that some children have found these changes unsettling but fortunately, due to each and every member of your amazing staff my children absolutely LOVED coming in and were happy, settled and they both grew in confidence.  The work that goes on 'behind the scenes' at schools during these challenging times is simply phenomenal and I wanted to express my gratitude to you all.  Thank you so much! - KS1 Parent



"It is not often that I write to the schools I work with after a visit, but, having visited your school for the first time, I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with everything you have done.

Your vision for the school is clearly alive and flourishing throughout the school in every action of the children and staff. You have a very positive, hard working staff and I was also impressed by the children's very good attitudes to learning. They were engaged and curious in their work and clearly enjoyed their learning.

Having been a primary headteacher myself for almost 20 years, I know how challenging it is to create a school with these attributes, so you should be very proud of all you have achieved so far. Keep up the good work and your school will continue to go from strength to strength." - Jeremy Crook, Educational Consultant




"Like most parents I was worried about sending my daughter to school. As a summer baby I didn’t feel she was ready, but I honestly cannot fault the help and support she has been given by her teacher and TA’s over this challenging time.
Over the past few months I have watched my daughter develop for a shy little girl who would cry and cling to me each day to a confident happy child who runs into class. I am also astonished at how quickly she has learned phonics and is starting to read.


I would have no hesitation in recommending this school and I cannot thank her teachers enough for all the are doing."  -  Apple Class Parent, EYFS
