Pupil voice is incredibly important to us at Chesterton. We ensure that our children have many opportunities to voice their opinions through student council meetings and through our Rights Respecting curriculum. In our most recent survey we asked our children a variety of questions about how they feel about their school experiences. The results were overwhelmingly positive and show that our children thoroughly enjoy their time with us.

They are an active part in thinking about ways to enhance pupil outcomes in terms of achievement, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety and the quality of leadership and management.

What parents and carers said:
96% of parents and carers agreed that their child makes good progress at our school, which is reflected in our incredible results throughout all Key Stages.

The surveys are just one way in which we gather our information. We hold regular coffee mornings and parents’ workshops to gain feedback on how we are doing.
