Working with other schools
We are part of the Chanctonbury Network of Schools (CNoS) alongside Upper Beeding Primary School, St Peter's CofE (Aided) Primary School, Ashurst CofE (Aided) Primary School and Jolesfield C of E Primary School. We work closely with all these schools and have joint INSET and meetings to share good practice and promote collaborative working. We also have a strong link with Steyning Grammar School which the children who live in this area naturally move on to.
The children across the schools have many opportunities to work, perform and compete with each other. For example, our collaborative Chancotonbury Music Festival hosted by Steyning Grammar School and The Chanctonbury Challenge.
The Chanctonbury Challenge is a jointly organised project which aims to raise the resilience of a group of children across the locality, to impact on their learning at the end of KS2 and into KS3. The four primary schools involved (listed above) work alongside Steyning Grammar School to fund, support and develop the project.
