Chesswood Junior School

Welcome to Year 3

We are so delighted that you are joining the Chesswood community.  To help with this, we have a number of videos and documents for you to look at a time that suits you.  We hope that these help you to feel prepared for September, but of course if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us via admissions@chesswood.w-sussex.sch.uk.

WELCOME PICNIC — FRIDAY 27th AUGUST

As mentioned in our July welcome letters to parents, we would like to invite our new Year 3 families to join us for a picnic on the field on Friday 27th August from midday to 2pm.  During this time, the Year 3 leader — Mr Gilbert, Deputy Head Teacher — Mr Himsworth, and other members of the Chesswood team will be on hand to say hello and help with any questions you have ahead of starting in September.  This is a perfect opportunity for you to see some familiar faces and get to know children that will be in your class this year.  There will also be the opportunity for members of staff to walk you round to your classroom and the Year 3 playground as a reminder of where to go on your first day, Monday 6th September.  

Key details:

Due to building work currently being carried out at school, please enter and leave through the Ladydell Road entrance (back gate).

The gate will be unlocked between midday and 2pm.

We will have designated areas for different classes to sit in to help you spot other children from your class — but appreciate you may want to sit with other families that you already know from other classes :-).  Don't worry if you can't remember your class - the adults here will have class lists.

Please bring with you any snacks/drinks/blankets/hats/sunscreen (hopefully it's sunny!).

Please note parents will need to stay with their children and supervise them during this visit.

Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate any pets during this visit (as lovely and cuddly as they are)!

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Friday 27th August.  If you have any questions about this event, please contact Mr Gilbert via email at ngilbert@chesswood.w-sussex.sch.uk.
