Our whole school community is bursting with pride having been recognised by the council for our pupils' fabulous results. We are in the Top 5 schools in the borough for numbers of Key Stage 2 pupils meeting expected standards in reading, writing and maths. We are also in the Top 6 schools for the number of our disadvantaged pupils meeting expected standards and (wait for it!) we have been recommended for a special award for the number of our disadvantaged pupils who make above average progress!

Thank you to everyone who took part in our annual WE Walk for Water event last month. We've now had our official fundraising total from event organisers WE Movement. Together we raised a staggering £2,029 to provide clean water to those who need it most!
Parents and carers - every week, in addition to sending letters home in book bags, we upload all letters by Year group to our website. Check you haven't missed any important information at this link.
Friday 27th April is our school-wide WE Walk for Water event where we fundraise to provide access to clean water for those who need it most. Once they are back in school, the children will be learning about the importance of clean water and the factors that stand in the way of some people in the world from getting it. All our lessons will be linked to our UNICEF Rights Respecting work. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter (@ChestertonSch) for lots of updates.
