Give Ofsted your view on Chesterton


Parent View gives you the chance to tell Ofsted what you think about your child’s school, from the quality of teaching to dealing with bullying and poor behaviour. The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until the school is being inspected. We will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect and when.

Feedback 2015-16
"Each and every one of you have made me feel welcome and part of the school. I am taking away inspiration from many of you. I now truly understand how long teachers spend on educating children (not just 9-3). I personally will bear this in mind when my daughter starts school." Leaving staff member
“Just wanted to say thank you as well for the support the school has given me this year – it is wonderful to see music become so embedded in the life of the school. I really do appreciate the way you accommodate the lessons and provide opportunities for the students to showcase their talents. It’s what it should all be about." Bethan Hunter, Music Teacher
"The school has a real village/family atmosphere, just as it had when I was a pupil." Year 6 Parent
"I just wanted to say thank you. I have a very happy little boy, who is very proud of his sports medal. I am so pleased with the progress he’s made this year and wanted to thank you for all your support and encouragement." Year 2 Parent
"I wanted to say a big thank you to all the teachers involved in the Woodlands visit. I know how much work goes into these trips – before, during and after and we really do appreciate it." Year 6 Parent
"Thank you for two lovely leavers’ assemblies. Both were really fitting and very personal. It is so lovely that the school is celebrating the children and how far they have come. You really hit the right note!" Year 6 Parent
"I just wanted to say how much we both enjoyed the cricket yesterday and the Sports Day last week. The atmosphere amongst the children on both occasions was a real tribute to the school. Everyone was encouraging each other and the older children were looking after the younger ones. No matter what house was competing, everyone was willing them to do well. The atmosphere and ethos of the day was such, that even the children who do not particularly like or excel in sports, were fully supported and the activities were inclusive of everyone." Parent of two children
"Thanks so much once again to both you and your teachers for making me feel welcome and for all your help. I’d also particularly like to thank your pupils, who were enthusiastic, perfectly behaved and a real credit to your school – you should be very proud of them." Visitor to the school, June 2016
"I wanted to say a massive ‘thank you’ to you all for being so supportive and kind over the past year. You all have contributed to helping me in one way or another and I couldn’t have done it without you. You are a great team and I hope you have another fantastic year in September." Trainee teacher
"Thank you for all you have done for my son (and me!) during his time at Chesterton; Pauline throughout his whole primary school life and Jackie for the last year. You have both been fantastic." Year 6 Parent
"Just a little note to say thank you for being so welcoming and supportive this year. It has been an absolute pleasure joining your fantastic team every Wednesday." Trainee teacher
"Thank you and all the staff too (for May Day). I was incredibly slick, good fun, relaxed – and the dancing was the best I’ve seen. In fact, the whole event was." Year 6 Parent May 2016
"Mrs Leonard, all the teaching assistants and other teachers are fantastic and do such a great job with the children. My son’s intellectual development has come along so well since being with you and it’s lovely to have him come home talking about what he has been learning that day/week. Please pass my thanks to everyone at the school and I think you all deserve a huge pat on the back." Reception Parent April 2016
"It was a real pleasure being involved (in the sportshall athletics event) yesterday. An absolute credit to you and your staff and all involved. If I can help you and the school in any way in the future, please do not hesitate to ask." Bicester Athletic Club Coach, April 2016
"Thank you very much for inviting me to be a ‘sports leader’ at Chesterton’s very first sportshall showdown. It was good to give back to such an amazing school." Former pupil, April 2016
"I also wanted to say what a fantastic assembly it was yesterday; I think probably the best I have even been to. It was lovely seeing the children so enthusiastic and excited about reading and getting involved. It was great fun as a parent as well. My daughter has really enjoyed this week’s reading activities, thank you." Year 5 Parent, Book Week March 2016
"Just wanted to say how impressed I was by your class today! I couldn’t believe how brave they were and they spoke so clearly about their super work. I’m sure it involved a lot of work within the Maple team. Thank you very much for allowing us such an excellent insight into their work." Reception Parent, February 2016
"Chesterton has a fantastic atmosphere, and the high levels of engagement of parents and staff is a credit to you and the rest of the team." Leaving Parent, February 2016
"The information evening was very good and the English and Grammar pack sent home is very helpful. Many thanks." Year 6 Parent, February 2016
"May I please thank you again for all your help and support with the NCMP session at your school yesterday. It all ran smoothly thanks to the brilliant organisation skills of your administrative ladies and the help of the teachers who kindly helped us with supervising the children whilst doing the measurements. We were most impressed with the perfect behaviour of all the children in Reception and Year 6 classes." School Health Nurse Assistant, January 2016
"I am really impressed with how the school feels and how many activities all the children now have a chance to be part of. I am very jealous of my boys going to such a special school; I wish I was that lucky when I were a lad." Parent, December 2015
"As usual, a lovely, joyful, fun-filled performance (BBC Radio Oxford Singing). Well done to all singers, the music teacher and a supportive staff." Grandparent, December 2015
"I should tell you that I have not ever come across a school with such cheerful office staff as you guys there. This could only be a positive reflection of how wonderful and happy everyone is at Chesterton and how you actually enjoy your working environment – very important. I am extremely happy that my daughter gets to be part of this." Year 3 Parent, October 2015
