We are consulting on our proposal to become an academy and to create a multi-academy trust with Chestnut Grove School. All parents and carers should have received a letter about this, please ask at the school office if you have not received your copy. You can also find information about the proposal at this link, which includes an online questionnaire so that you can let us have your views on the proposal. We are holding a consultation meeting at school on Tuesday 10th October at 3.30pm, and then repeated at 5.30pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
At Chesterton we believe that regular homework not only helps children's achievement, but also provides parents with a clear idea of how they can support learning at home. Please take a look at the homework information at this link to see what our expectations are of each Year group.
