Welcome to Christ Church Primary School’s
We are a 2 form entry Church of England Primary School, situated in Western Lichfield, Staffordshire.
Christ Church is a friendly and caring school where children are happy, motivated and eager to learn. Positive behaviour and respect for each other is embedded throughout our school community. Our school ethos is ‘Christ Church Cares.’
Being a Church of England School, we have strong links with our local Church, Christ Church.
We hope you enjoy looking around our site and that you can find all of the information you require. Should you wish to look around the school, then please contact the school office (details can be found above) and they will arrange a tour for you.
Take a look below at what we have been learning, inside and outside of school..!

On Saturday 5th April, seventeen children from year 6 competed in The Lichfield Schools Hockey Tournament. Both teams played brilliantly and demonstrated great team spirit. It was excellent to have so many parents and children showing their support for both teams. The ‘A Team’ was delighted with their 2nd position in the tournament, having lost just one game! Fantastic skills and goals came from both teams and all the children were a real asset to Christ Church. Well done to all those involved.
Last Thursday (3rd April), children from year 3 and 4 competed in a Tag Rugby Tournament at Burntwood Rugby Club. The team had lots of enthusiasm and put their all into each game! It was a great experience for all those involved and everyone played brilliantly
School Council Trip to "Make Some Noise!"
On Wednesday 26th March, the members of the School Council in Years 4, 5 and 6 had another School Council Network meeting. The meeting allowed children from different Primary Schools in Lichfield to get together and work on a music project with The Lichfield Festival.
All the different school council's are working on a project, in which they have to raise £150 (we are doing a talent show), so that a professional musician to come into school and deliver a music concert for the whole school in the summer term.
During the morning, they worked with a group call ‘Make Some Noise’ to develop their musical understanding.
Last Wednesday, 12th February, 6 girls from Year 5 and 6 took part in the Licfield school cross country race at Whittington Primary. They all ran a brilliant race and should feel incredibly proud of themselves for running the 2 mile course. In particular, Freya Gregory did exceptionally well, coming in first place overall. Well done to all the girls involved.
The VLE and Sherston Planet
Please view our link for an opportunity to see how we are using the School VLE (Virtual Learning Environment) and Sherston Planet in school. During the next Parents' evening, you are invited to visit the ICT suite to see the products in action. Our 'expert' children will be on hand demonstrating how to access them and more information will be made available at that time.
Netball – 4th March 2014
Boys and girls from years 5 and 6 took part in two netball matches against Fulfen Primary School. All the children played brilliantly and there were many fantastic passes and some tense moments as children were shooting. Sadly, Christ Church did not win on this occasion; however they did make us all very proud!
Well done to all those involved.
