About Us

"Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated and passionate about what they do."

Nelson Mandela 1918 - 2013

On behalf of our school, I am delighted that you have chosen to visit us and hope that you find the information available useful. Mr Minott, Headteacher.

We aim to make learning interesting. Chase View sees itself as at the heart of the Pear Tree Community and offers the foundations of an excellent education for life, enabling all to develop as independent, confident, effective and responsible learners through the provision of an enriched and enjoyable curriculum. We regard belonging to our school as something special which is important to all of us. We hope that you and your children will also feel part of our family. 

Staff enjoy working here and children enjoy learning here. It all goes towards providing children with a caring and secure environment, as above all else we want children to feel they are given the opportunity to succeed.



Our vision:

We believe in developing pupils' love of learning and appreciation of nature so they can leave Chase View equipped to be lifelong learners.

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, with reading at the heart. We are creating the next generation of authors through our phonics and writing programmes. Numeracy isn't just about maths here! Our forest school, animals and location to Cannock Chase encourage pupils to develop their self-esteem and love of nature so they have experiences and the confidence to use their individual talents, skills and knowledge effectively.

Dedicated teachers encourage dedicated learners. We have enthusiastic and emphatic teachers that provide a happy, stimulating environment that encourages each child to reach their full potential and strive for excellence in all areas of school life.

We value the partnership which exists between school, parents and community and the part it plays in realising this vision.

The Governing Board are the strategic leaders of our school and have a vital role to play in making sure every child receives the best possible education. They have a strong focus on three core strategic functions:

Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils, and staff;

Overseeing the financial performance of the school, making sure its money is well spent.

Every week, they carry out hundreds of inspections and regulatory visits throughout England and publish the results online.

Our goal is to achieve excellence in education and skills for learners of all ages, and in the care of children and young people.

Forest School
Chase View Forest School sessions take place within the school day and are run by Ms Hardy and Mrs Babington
Forest School is a fantastic opportunity for children to learn and develop new skills through hands-on experiences in our natural environment. The philosophy of Forest School is to encourage and inspire individuals. Children will take part in a series of sessions that encourage the development of skills such as resilience, understanding how to stay safe, teambuilding, making healthy choices and developing empathy.
Children are encouraged to be in charge of their own learning and sessions are mainly made up of child-led learning experiences. Some of the activities we enjoy are fire lighting, wide games, making natural art, den building, cooking over a fire and barefoot walks. This all happens in our wonderful wooded area where the children also experience the changing seasons and being outside in all weathers. Forest School hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows are a firm favourite!
