Information for Parents
Welcome to the section of the website for parents. Our aim is to make this a useful too. We hope that you will use it regularly to check what is going on at Chesterfield. Please click on the links on the left for helpful parent information.
Please find below the document that parents sign annually at our parent consultation evening. This is an agreement between the school, child and parent about the commitments that they make towards the pupil's education.
