Headteacher’s Welcome

I extend a very warm welcome to Shocklach Oviatt C. E. Primary School. Our small village school is set in beautiful countryside and has a long and proud history. We strive for the highest academic, artistic, sporting and social successes for our pupils, recognising and celebrating the individuality and achievements of all.

Our Christian values of respect, trust, kindness, forgiveness and friendship are at the heart of everything we do. We pride ourselves on our warm, welcoming and inclusive environment, where every child is cherished and their talents nurtured.
“Life in all its fullness“ (John 10:10) is close to our hearts at Shocklach and something we aim to ‘live out’ on a daily basis. We encourage our children to achieve their fullest selves and the highest outcomes of which they are capable, in thanks for the gifts God has given.

Strong links with St. Edith’s Church, governors, families and the local community are highly valued and help to make Shocklach such a special place in which to teach and learn.

Please contact the school office if you would like to find out more about primary education at Shocklach and I will be very happy and proud to show you around.

Mrs Cathy Davies

Executive Headteacher





At Shocklach Oviatt CE Primary school we are proud to be one of the only schools in Cheshire that offers an Early Years setting that is predominantly based in the forest. This is known as our Woodland Classroom. In this unique setting we offer the full aspects of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum whilst giving the children opportunity to explore and enjoy all that nature has to offer. The opportunities for learning outside are endless with benefits to mental health, physical development, creativity, independence and developing firm friendships.

In our setting the children are exposed to real life opportunities to problem solve, communicate and are able to let their imagination and creativity run wild in a natural setting without the limitations of four walls and a ceiling!

The term after your child turns 3 they will be warmly welcomed into our Woodland Classroom as a member of our Nursery class. All we ask from you is that they have wellies and waterproofs and are ready to have muddy fun! We guarantee they will!

To apply for a Nursery place please email or phone the school on 01829 250285.


Our Classes

Our school is arranged into 3 classes.

All children receive a very flexible and targeted education delivered by highly qualified staff, experienced in teaching children with a wide range of abilities, within a vertical class structure. Teaching is done in both ability groups and mixed ability groupings which allows ‘challenge and stretch’ and maximises the generous amount of physical space within the school.

Nursery provision is now available for the term after your child turns 3 years old. Having nursery provision in Shocklach has a positive impact on the whole school and provides a smooth transition for pupils from nursery to reception.

We have had an amazing trip to York! All the children were wonderfully respectful and polite to the various tour guides, hotel staff and our coach driver. I am also very proud of the children who were nervous about staying away from home, a huge achievement for some who haven’t stayed away without family before. A wonderful couple of days had by all and some lovely memories have been made.

🐿 have been looking for micro habitats today. We found lots of creepy crawlies and thought carefully about why they had chosen to live under rocks, logs and in the leaf litter.
