Information about the School
Dr Walker’s Church of England Primary School is a small village Voluntary Controlled community school, in the heart of Fyfield, Ongar. Due to the size of the school, year groups are hosted in mixed year group classes, which change annually.
Being affiliated with the Church of England, we preserve and develop its Christian ethos, principles and character and work in partnership with the local church (St Nicholas) and the Diocese of Chelmsford
Our school aims to be An Exceptional Place to Flourish, where we work together with the pupils to help them grow, progress, achieve and develop to become well-balanced British and global citizens; aspiring to live a life in all its fullness and to succeed.
We believe that every school day counts and that every child is valued, nurtured and cared for. We seek excellence by ensuring a safe, dignified, and respectful learning environment, where diversity, differences, talents, and interests are celebrated.
Our pursuit of excellence embraces our associated Christian Values aligned with the fundamental British Values.
Being part of a small school has many benefits, but also presents its own unique challenges. We encourage everyone in our school community to work well together and contribute positively to school life, in support of collective responsibility, mutual accountability, and emphasising the importance of dignity, respect, honesty, kindness, courtesy and consideration.
Please note that we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of our pupils and expect all those who work with us to share this commitment. Successful applicants will need to undertake a DBS Enhanced Clearance check (Disclosure and Barring Service).
