General Announcements

Distinction from AfPE!

We’re pleased to announce that we have, after 3 years, retained our Association of PE (AfPE) P.E. award at distinction level. Our assessors feedback noted how hard it was for schools to retain distinctions with everyone improving overall. Well done to our Healthy Living Team in school who keep us moving … Mrs P for her daily aerobics sessions … our Gym Team … our Dance Team … our teachers for their fantastic PE teaching and our children for their enthusiasm for PE and healthy living!

PHONICS: Support for parents

With the Year 1 Phonics Screening coming up in June, if you feel that you need some additional support and information this may be of interest. Chellaston Infants do not endorse the programme but would be interested in hearing if parents found it useful.

Breakfast Club Closure

Sadly,  our Breakfast Club will cease to run after May half term holiday. This has been a very difficult decision for school to make and we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
