Autumn Open Events (November)

Open Evening Presentation

Welcome to our virtual open event 2020. We would very much liked to have met you and your child in person but given the current circumstances that has simply not been possible. Nevertheless we have pulled together a range of information that will support families and children gain a good view of life and learning at Chesswood Junior School. This page includes a welcome introduction from the head teacher (3mins), the main presentation by the head teacher (1 hour 15 mins); frequently asked questions booklets for parents and children and MOST IMPORTANTLY videos (unscripted!) created by children to give a sense of life and learning at Chesswood Junior School. As part of the open event there is also an opportunity for all parents to engage in a live question and answer session with the head teacher, senior leaders and the Year 3 leader.
