Parents! If you would like help filling in your online application form for a Reception place in September 2017, we are running a drop in at the school on the morning of Tuesday 29th November. Please pop into the school office for help from Mr Kheir or Miss Thurston. We look forward to seeing you then.
Parents and carers - you should now have received proofs of your child's school photo along with ordering details. Please follow the instructions that the photographer has provided, and remember that all photos must be ordered directly from him. Unfortunately we cannot take orders at the school office.
Our school photographer will be in on Monday (14 November) to take individual photos of all children. Parents - please remember that if you would like sibling photos you need to let the school office know in advance, as these won't be taken automatically.
Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing everyone looking smart and ready for their close-ups on Monday morning!
Wishing all pupils, their families and all our friends and neighbours a great, and safe November 5th weekend. Parents - if you haven't received it by email, please take a look at the weekly newsletter here and please make sure that the school office has your up to date details so that the newsletter and other important information about your child can be delivered direct to your inbox.
Happy Halloween and welcome back to school. We hope you all had a great break and are looking forward to another busy and productive half-term. Just a reminder that if you would like to book breakfast club or after school care for your child or children for this half-term you need to please fill out the booking form here. Full details of how to pay and how to book are on this web page.
This Monday (31st October) is the deadline for Wandsworth Council to have received your admissions form for Year 7 places in September 2017. You can fill out the form online by clicking here or get a paper copy from either the council or the school office. If you need help with the form, our Learning Mentor Miss Thurston is in school today (Friday) to help. Make sure you get your form in on time!
We wish all pupils, their families and Chesterton staff a great half-term. We'll see you on Monday 31 October! Remember the application deadline for secondary school admissions is also Monday 31 October. Miss Thurston will be in school during the holidays on Wednesday 26 October and Friday 28 October for any parents who need help with forms.
Throughout the week from Monday 17th to Friday 21st we're running a Scholastic book fair in the Key Stage 1 hall. Parents and carers are warmly invited to come along, browse and buy from a great range of fiction and non-fiction books between 3.15pm and 4pm.
Scholastic will give the school a percentage of all sales, which we'll use to replenish book corners for every class. By supporting the book fair not only will your child get a new book, they'll also benefit from new books to read in school. We'll also have a lovely range of stationery on offer.
We look forward to seeing you there.
All Chesterton staff are now listed on the website with their job role and their photo (last few photos to come in the next week or so). Please take a look at all the staff involved in making sure the school runs as smoothly and successfully as possible.
Thank you to all the Reception parents for joining us on the second session of our phonics workshop this morning, focusing on blending and segmenting of phonetically plausible words. We look forward to seeing you all again next Wednesday (19 October) at 9am for our final workshop of three on tackling tricky words!
Apologies to all parents for the confusion, school photos are actually Friday 11 November, not 11 October. We got so excited about seeing all the pupils looking super-smart, that we brought it forward a month by accident! If you have any questions about school uniform requirements they're hopefully all answered here, if not please ask at the school office.
We're looking for a Maths specialist teacher to join our highly motivated and effective teaching team. Ninety four per cent of our pupils met expected standards in their KS2 SATs and 24 per cent were working at greater depth. If you've got the skills and determination to grow that success we'd love to hear from you! Please apply here by Friday 14 October.
Our next open event for prospective Nursery and Reception parents is on Thursday 6 October at 9.15am. If you'd like to find out more about our Outstanding Nursery and Reception provision please call the school office to book your place at the event. You can see a full list of all our open events here.
We are looking for a highly-motivated Finance Officer with excellent numeracy and communication skills. Ideally the successful candidate will also already hold, or be working towards, AAT. Please see our Work with Us pages for full details. The closing date for applications is 22 September, with interviews in the week of 26 September.
As you may have noticed our school website has changed! We hope that you find it easy and useful and that it contains all the information to support your child, if you're a current parent, or start to decide whether the school is for you, if you're a prospective parent. We'd love to hear your comments, including any ideas for what we could add or improve.
