She has had a very positive day today and is buzzing to tell you all about it tomorrow. This has only been so positive, as all the support she has received from everyone at Chesterton school.

We are both so impressed with the school. ....... is very happy, as you know, and her progress amazes us. It's very reassuring with ....... starting soon too. The sports award is a lovely end to the year - we are busy sending lots of pictures of the medal to Grandparents, Aunties and Uncles! Hope you have a great, well deserved summer."
Parent, July 2023

"Dear Mr. Horner, As we briefly discussed at the school gate today, I just wanted to thank you and the entire team at Chesterton for the terrific experience that ....... and ...... enjoyed as students of the school. It's been a pleasure watching our children and their friends thrive in Chesterton. ....... and ....... have felt safe and nurtured, and have grown in confidence and maturity together. We don't have a much basis for comparison beyond the experience of friends' children in other areas, but it does seem to us as though we were really fortunate to find Chesterton, so we wanted to thank you and your team once again. Watching today's class, I think you guys have a great deal to be proud of and I hope all of the kids are as well taken care of in their next schools as they have been in yours. Have a wonderful summer."
Leaving Parent, July 2023

"Just wanted to email you regarding some Chesterton students that I have seen this week. I am currently working at an event in Bicester, and I saw quite a few children yesterday and today, to which they all remembered me as ....... I just wanted to let you know how polite and friendly these children were, a huge credit to the school.
I also received an email saying I would not be back at Chesterton for my summer placement so I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the opportunity at your school for my last two placements. Such incredibly talented and thoughtful children, and the loveliest teaching staff. I couldn't be more grateful that I was given such a great school. I will always remember Chesterton as my first ever teaching placement and hopefully I'll be back, maybe even after I graduate!

Parental feedback re. Ofsted report, April 2023

"Thank you so much for organising the trip yesterday to Bicester Library. ....... came home so excited about the books he wanted to get out and has demanded we take him on Saturday to find the ‘Batman book' he was reading there. It has really helped his motivation to read and we are very grateful he was given this opportunity with the school. Thank you for organising it, and please also pass on our thanks to the staff who helped and the staff at The Bicester Library."
Reception Parent, March 2023

"Amongst all of this we know he will miss his friends and the teaching staff at Chesterton, we couldn't be happier with the quality of teaching and overall culture at your wonderful school ...... this will be a hard act to follow, but we are safe in the knowledge that his early introduction to schooling couldn't have been happier."
Reception Parent, March 2023

Year 1 Parent, February 2023

"Both classes were a pleasure to work with, their manners were impeccable. They were engaged from the get go and took part in all the activities with great enthusiasm. Both myself & Vicki commented on what a great display of behaviour we saw."

"I just wanted to write a quick thank you for the trip that was organised for eco council today. ..... absolutely LOVED visiting the Ardley Energy Recovery Facility and has been filling us in on everything she did and what they do there."
Eco Council Parent – November 2022

"(Thank you) for inviting ...... to take part in the multi-skills event and for Mrs Tuffrey for taking him. He had such a good time. He just loves sports so much but taking part in any sports club outside of the garden is still a struggle for him. We are very grateful to you for providing opportunities for him to be able to participate within an environment and with people who are safe to him."
Lower School Parent, November 2022

"Thank you so much for taking the class on the trip to Hill End yesterday - ..... found it absolutely fascinating and she enjoyed telling us all about the activities in detail. I have no doubt these things take a lot of organisation so a big thank you to all involved."
Year 3 Parent, November 2022

Year 3 Parent, November 2022

"We just wanted to email you to thank you for the time you took last Friday to show us round your fantastic school. We were so impressed with the beautiful school surroundings, the teachers and the children who we saw whilst we were there. We could also really see how proud and passionate you were which was lovely."
Prospective Parent, October 2022

"I just wanted to write a note to say thank you so much for all the effort you and the staff put into the residential trip. ..... has come home absolutely full of beans, he enjoyed himself so much and loved all the activities. He even ate a tuna sandwich (something we've not managed to get him to even try it before!). He said the instructors were really good at explaining what he had to do and were very patient with him. I bet you all need a few days to get over it all and catch up on sleep. ..... shed a little tear earlier as he's going to miss being there."
