Dear Parents/Carers,


What a fantastic way to end the school year with our sports morning.  It was lovely to see so many children participating in races and showing great sportsmanship.  Thank you to all the staff for organising the event.  We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did.


During assembly today we said farewell to our Year 2 children. We would like to wish all the Year 2 leavers best wishes and continuing success as they move to Year 3.  We will all be thinking of them and would like to hear how the children are getting on in the future.  We have also said farewell to the staff that will not be returning in September; Miss Smith, Miss Park, Miss Searle & Mrs Dodson.  We would like to wish all the staff leaving us best wishes for the future and welcome Ms White to the CPIS team.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the parents and carers for your support during this year and to thank everyone that has volunteered their time to help with school events, educational visits and the Friends of CPIS.  Thank you on behalf of the whole staff team for the gifts and cards received.  We really do appreciate your kindness.  Well done to the hardworking staff team at CPIS for all they have done this year.


We wish you all a safe and enjoyable summer and look forward to seeing you again on Tuesday 3rd September 2019.


Mike McNama, Headteacher


Pirate Party


This week the reception year children enjoyed a pirate party as part of their topic this term.  There were lots of pirates in school and it was lovely to see so many children   enjoying the party and taking part.


Year 2 Leavers’ Concerts


We are sure Year 2 parents/carers enjoyed the leavers’ concert last week.  The children were amazing dancing, singing, acting and playing instruments to an exceptional standard.  The    teachers and I were proud of them all.  Well done Year 2!  Thank you to all the adults who prepared the children for this farewell performance.


Friends of Chester Park Infant School

This year the Friends of CPIS have held some highly successful events.  The amount raised so far this year is over £3000 through events and fundraising.  Members have volunteered their time to help with new parent’s meetings, cake sales and events such as Harvest.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved with the Friends for all their hard work and support throughout the year.   We always need new members to volunteer and help out.  Please let us know if you would like to help out in 2019/2020 or email the friends on friendsofcpis@gmail.  Thank you.
