Jack Rutter GB Athlete Visit


We’re very excited to be welcoming GB Paralympic Footballer Jack Rutter to school on Tuesday 20th February. Jack will be leading a sponsored fitness circuit with all pupils, and will follow-up with a talk and question and answer session. The aim of the event is to inspire the children to take up sport generally, but just as importantly to encourage them to discover and then pursue their passion in life. This week Miss Dicken led an assembly explaining the event to the children and we also sent home details and the sponsor form. Please encourage your child to practice the 4 exercises at home during half tem and please remember all children will need to have their PE kits in school for Tuesday 20th February.


Reading Volunteers


We are currently looking for parents/carers to listen to and help children read in school. This is a great opportunity to gain experience of working with children, learn new skills such as being part of a team but most of all help children learn to read! We would be grateful of any time you can spare to help our children learn to read! Thank you.


If you would be interested in being a reading volunteer please give your details to the school office or telephone 0117 3773047 or email chesterparki@bristol-schools.uk

Internet Safety Week

We launched our e-safety week with an assembly on Monday. During assembly we introduced the children to the story of Digi Duck’s Big Decision. This story teaches children to think carefully about sharing information online. Throughout the week the children have been creating booklets, posters and taking part in role play acting to promote the e-safety message. Please discuss all what your child has learned this week at home.


We will be holding an Internet Safety workshop for parents/carers on Thursday 22nd February at 2.40pm, where we will share the children’s work with you through a presentation.


New School Meal Menu


Today we have sent home the new school meal menu which will start from Monday 19th February.


Lip Balm & Watches


We have noticed an increase in items in school that we do not allow. Lip balms should not be in school due to health and hygiene reasons and watches are not allowed to be worn as stated in our jewellery policy. Please can you ensure that your child does not bring any of these items to school. Thank you.


World Book Day



This year World Book Day will take place on Thursday 1st March during our Literacy week.


Each year the children and staff at CPIS celebrate World Book Day by coming into school dressed as their favourite book characters. We always look forward to seeing everyone's ideas and costumes.


We hope you will join in this year and send your child to school dressed as a book character.
