Chapmanslade CE VA Primary School is a unique, small village primary school set in beautiful countryside between Westbury and Frome. Our little school has a wonderful community feel which we pride ourselves on. We are well-resourced, with a highly committed staff and a dedicated governing body. Our pupils are charming, charismatic and well-motivated. The school is thriving after a busy year. Last year we renewed our vision and values, thinking about what really makes us special – our pupils are wonderfully caring toward each other. At Chapmanslade School we aim to ‘Love our neighbour as we love ourselves in all we do’. Chapmanslade School continues to be judged as a ‘good’ school during a positive Ofsted inspection in March last year.
