May Day: Wednesday 25th May
It feels like a long time since we have been able to hold our full May Day celebrations! As in previous years, we are holding the festivities a little later in the month – on the last Wednesday of Term 5. This should give us a better chance of warmer weather and also keeps us clear of the very busy build up to SATs tests.

WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK – Monday 23rd to Friday 27th May 2022
I am writing to let you know about some of the activities that are taking place in school to celebrate ‘Walk to School Week’. As we said when we launched our Walk to School Week a few years ago, we appreciate that finding an alternative to travelling to school by car is not possible for all of our families due to the nature of our catchment area. Therefore, we have again aimed to offer plenty of different opportunities that pupils can take part in throughout the week - whether you live 50 yards from the school or 5 miles.

Visit from Rachael Mackenzie, Tuesday 24th May
On Tuesday 24th May, we have the exciting opportunity to welcome Rachael Mackenzie, athlete mentor with the Youth Sport Trust, to visit Chesterton. Rachael’s background is as an elite-level martial artist, spending many years participating in top-level sport, and her career now encompasses physiotherapy, as well as her work with young people across the country.

Comic Relief 2022 at Chesterton School Friday 18th March 2022
This year, Chesterton School are really excited to be raising money for Comic Relief 2022! As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Comic Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise money and change lives.

KS2 SATS Evening for Years 4/5/6, Wed 9th March
As you are aware, KS2 SATs are approaching for our Year 6 children (w/c Monday 9th May 2022). Therefore, we thought that it would be useful to hold another KS2 SATs information evening for parents on Wednesday 9th March at 6.00pm. We feel that it will be beneficial for Year 6 parents to have an understanding of how best to support their child with some aspects of their schoolwork in the lead-up to SATs. We have also decided to open it up to parents of children in Year 4 and 5, as they may find it useful to know how the Key Stage Two curriculum, and therefore the assessments, have changed in recent years.

World Book Day 2022
This year the annual 'World Book Day' is 25 years old! Here at Chesterton, we will be celebrating in school with a 'Book Week' running from Monday 28th February through to Friday 4th March. Although Thursday 3rd March is officially World Book Day, we will be holding book related activities throughout the entire week.

How The Grinch Stole Christmas
Following the success of last year's 'The Night Before A Chesterton Christmas' video, I have decided to take on the challenge of editing together another festive offering! This year, I would like the pupils to apply their dramatic reading talents to another one of my favourites: Dr Seuss' 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas'...

Anti-Bullying Week
Anti-Bullying Week is coordinated In England and Wales by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and takes place from 15th to 19th November 2021. This year, the theme is: One Kind Word.

Children In Need
This year, we are again really excited to be raising money for Children in Need! As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Children in Need 2021 brings the entire nation together to do something amazing for children all around the UK. As always, Chesterton School Council has decided to get involved and help raise money for this incredible cause.

Childhood Flu Vaccination Programme 2021
Your child’s annual flu vaccination is due on 16th November at Chesterton Primary School

Link to Hope: Family and Elderly Shoe Box Appeal
Following the success of last year's appeal, we have decided to continue to support the Link to Hope shoeboxes, as we liked the fact that these boxes reached different generations.

Universal Infant Free School Meals
As you will already be aware, if your child is in Reception or KS1, they are entitled to a lunch provided by the school as part of the Government’s Universal Infant Free School Meals programme. This is not the same as entitlement to Free School Meals.

Race for Life, Thursday 30th September,
I am pleased to let you know that Chesterton School is holding its annual, very own Race for Life event for Cancer Research UK and we would love your child to join the fun.
