Student voice feedback

“Students in our recent students voice have asked for more healthy food options to be available. As a result our canteen will soon be offering wholewheat pasta dishes and carrot sticks as a snack.  In addition, students said they would like more Halal meat options and pancakes. These will be on offer after half-term.”

Parent Carer Forum

The next Parent/Carer forum will take place on Wednesday 26th February at 6pm.

At our last forum we discussed:

  • Rewards
  • Our Parent Carer Manager
  • Kooth
  • New school uniform

Members were aware of our need for a new uniform to help identify our students amongst other local schools. Members preferred the charcoal trousers, skirts and pinafore, (as opposed to the black ones), so we will be choosing these moving forward.  We are still looking into a suitable tie.

A few members highlighted that they’ve had difficulty in finding shoes compliant with our policy. We will be happy to supply a list of local stockists who sell reasonably-priced shoes compliant with our school policy upon request.  

Easter school activities are being organised and will be discussed in our forthcoming meeting. We look forward to hopefully seeing you there.

Sixth Form students shine in the Community

The Connecting Communities project received a big thank you from one of its very happy participants this week.

Connecting Communities is a project run on Tuesday mornings at Thornton Children’s Centre. It is a free playgroup for toddlers and babies from 9.30am until 10.30am.

The Sixth formers volunteer and spend time playing with the toddlers, engaging them in physical literacy skills and helping them to socialise with other children.

There is no need to book, just turn up on the day for a fun packed hour. The next session will be held on Tuesday 3rd March at Thornton Children’s Centre, Stannyfield Drive, Thornton.

Thank you so much to all the amazing Chesterfield students and teacher for the lovely playgroup. You are all amazing and a great credit to the school!

Safer Internet Day

Chesterfield High School students are receiving a range of Internet Safety sessions during form time every day this week along with an Internet Safety assembly. Students are exploring how their digital footprint can impact their future opportunities – both positively and negatively.

Year 13 Exams

Subject teachers are currently offering additional support to Year 13 students as coursework deadlines and final examinations approach. This information varies from subject to subject and the specific details can be found via this link.

Students are encouraged to take up these opportunities to enhance their understanding and to aid their revision. Further to this the external examination timetables will be distributed after February half term, however the examination boards have identified 24th June 2020 as a contingency date. Essentially if an examination has to be re-scheduled once the schedule is published then this is the date the Board will use. Therefore it is recommended that holidays are not booked until after this date.

Merseyside Police – Bike Register

Merseyside Police visited us in school yesterday to register students’ bikes on the national database to prevent theft.

The police were have provided our students with free bike locks and lights to further keep the bikes and our students safe! Merseyside Police have kindly said that they will happily re-visit us again, so if you are a student who would still like to get their bike registered, please let Miss Jones know.
