E:News – 9 March 2018


Firstly, a huge thank you to our CHS families, parents and children alike, for their support this week whilst the school was being inspected by Ofsted.  The Inspectors will review all the evidence they collected and will issue their report within a month.   The Inspector did ask me to thank all concerned for their patience and cooperation.  She also asked me to let you all know that she very much enjoyed her visits to the classrooms and meeting the children this week.  When the Ofsted report is available it will be published on our website.  We are delighted that the feedback recorded in the Parent Questionnaire on Ofsted’s Parent View was very positive. The results can be viewed here https://parentview.ofsted.gov.uk/parent-view-results/survey/result/125311/current
I was very proud to read that 100% of our CHS parents, who took part, strongly agreed that they would recommend the school.
Once again, the CHS staff stepped up to the plate with great spirit, hard work and enthusiasm.  I am honoured to be leading such a marvellous team.
As I write this our Form Two children are heading off to Kensington Leisure Centre for their final swimming lesson where their parents have been invited to watch.  The venue is located on Bomore Road, W11 4HB.
Upcoming Dates
Forms Five & Six will be visiting the Houses of Parliament and Churchill’s War Rooms on Tuesday, 13 March.  The children will have a tour of the Houses of Parliament where they will be learning about its history and in The War Rooms they will explore how the country was run during World War Two.
On Wednesday, 14 March, we are looking forward to welcoming once again Chris Jay from the charity Enable Me.  This is a very worthwhile organisation and an event that deepens the children’s understanding of living with a disability.  Please do take the time to visit their website here http://enablemeproject.org.uk
Open Morning – existing pupils
We are looking forward to seeing all of you in school on Friday, 16 March between 8.30-11.30am for this annual event.  We have organised a slightly different programme with Dr Ashworth in the larger space of the dining room where he will be looking forward to accompanying any of our budding musicians who would like to share their music with friends and family.  Miss Forbes will be stationed in the Music Room with the pupils from Forms Three to Six with art portfolios belonging to our senior pupils.  Of course, I am sure she will be very happy to discuss the art curriculum with parents of younger pupils.
Open Afternoon – prospective pupils
For our Key Stage 2 children who have been invited to Open Afternoon on Friday, 16 March, please do let us know if your child will be returning to school at 12.20pm-2pm.
Now that Easter is approaching we would like to remind you that whilst the giving of chocolate, sweet treats or Easter eggs is most welcome, please remember that we are a NUT FREE school.  No products of any kind for children or staff can be accepted into the school with any trace of nuts.
With very best wishes.
Mrs Victoria Hampton
