We Need You
It's just over a month until our annual School Association Summer Fair on 15th June.
It is a big event with many elements and we will need lots of volunteers to deliver it safely and successfully.
Please click for a volunteer sign-up sheet. This year, we are asking for more volunteers to make sure that people running the stalls can do it in shifts and be able to enjoy the Fair with their children and not be stuck at the stall the whole event!
The more people we have signed up, the easier it becomes to everyone involved so please sign up to help if you can. Even help with setting up or cleaning after is appreciated.
Please be aware that we will not be able to run the event if we don't have a sufficient number of volunteers, so thank you in advance for any help you can give.

Summer Fair advertisement boards
The preparations for our annual Summer Fair are in full swing!
Last year some of you kindly agreed to have Summer Fair advertisement boards outside your houses.
This year we will be working with IMS group and they are currently in design/production stage for the boards. We would like to use the same display locations as last year. Additionally, we are looking for locations in Upper Heyford (ideally on the main road/square), so please contact us on the email below if you can assist.
If you previously had a board but would not like to participate this year (or moved) please email
Kind Regards

Easter Egg Hunt, Thursday 28th March
After the success of last years' Easter Egg Hunt, Chesterton School will be holding this year's event on Thursday 28th March (straight after school - please arrive to school for the usual pick-up time). Children will need to be accompanied by their parents to participate. Please note that there will be no Tree House sessions as this is the final day of term.
£4 per child
Please pay in the usual way via Scopay (deadline Friday 22nd March at midday). Please ensure that you book by the deadline, as we cannot extend the date and some children have been disappointed by missing other activities so far this year.
If your child has a younger sibling (not at the school) who would like to attend, please pay on Scopay. If the younger sibling has any dietary needs, please email the School Association at

Annual General Meeting: Thursday 5th October
The School Association would like to invite all parents to our Annual General Meeting, which will be held on Thursday 5th October at the School Hall (7-9pm).
As a registered charity, the School Association is obliged to hold a meeting annually where they summarise the previous year and agree their activities for this academic year.
The meeting is scheduled to last about an hour and the remaining time is dedicated to social activities, drinks(!) and discussion. It's a great opportunity (especially for the new Maple parents) to meet not only the School Association committee members but also other parents/carers at our school.
We always welcome new members to join the committee so if you would like to get involved, please come along!
