Operating as usual


👑🇬🇧🏅The Royal British Legion and CJK Packaging have kindly donated a commemorative coronation medal for each of our pupils. We aim to distribute the medals to pupils ahead of the coronation weekend.

Here are some proud members of the school council modelling their medals 🏅

So today this happened. We visited Chapel-en-le-Frith C of E VC Primary School to present the children with a Commemorative Coronation Medal, sponsored by CJK Packaging of Chinley, owned by Chris and Kath Sizeland. Thank you to the School Council and Head Teacher Jacquie Barber for a fab photo.

WBD 2023 done! 📚 We started the day with an assembly where it was lovely to see all the children (and grown ups!) looking snuggly in their pyjamas! All classes have had a day off timetable to do all things 'books'. Children have gone home saying 'it's been the best WBD ever!'


A reminder that the theme for this year's WBD is 'Sharing a bedtime story' and so we are asking pupils to come to school in their pyjamas and, if they would like, they can bring a teddy or small cushion or blanket to snuggle down with as we share stories.

Year 3 have had a lovely afternoon visiting the residents at Chapel Lodge as part of an intergenerational project run by the Be Well charity in Glossop. Each child in year 3 will be visiting at least once a term to play games, do craft activities, sing songs etc. It was amazing to see the children and residents interacting with each other ❤️

Happy World Science Day 🌍🧪👩🏻‍🔬
We’ve loved being scientists investigating different concepts such as space, habitats, human body, weather and volcanic explosions. KS2 children also experienced a journey through space in the Wonderdome 🪐🔭


Our netball team had their first training session tonight and we had lots of amazing players!

If you missed out on a space or are thirsty for more, why not join the local High Peak Netball Club? The juniors meet each Thursday between 5-6pm for any child aged between 8 - 11 at Chapel High School.

A big thank you to the club for allowing Miss Brown to visit and give her lots of ideas to kick start our school team!


Today we have officially launched our Junior Duke challenge!

We have 128 eager KS2 children who are excited to learn some new skills and have lots of fun! We hope you find it simply enough to complete and enjoy doing something new.

If you need any more information on this, please do not hesitate to get in touch with either Miss Brown or Mrs Parker.

We can't wait to see all the challenges that you complete and the new skills you will learn.

Good luck everyone!

▪The Governing Body of Chapel en le Frith C of E VC Primary School has a vacancy for a parent governor▪

The Governing Body works as a team to provide support, challenge and influencing strategies. We are hoping that parents/carers will nominate themselves for this position and help us by contributing ideas and influencing decision making.

The Governing Body is made up of parents, teachers and other members of the community. The Governing Body meets 6 times per year (plus committee meetings) to support the work of the school, and together with the Headteacher is responsible for making sure that the school provides the best outcomes for pupils.

▫What skills do I need?▫

The National Governors’ Association identifies the following essential skills for all governors:
● Commitment to improving education for all pupils
● Ability to work in a professional manner as part of a team and take collective responsibility for decisions
● Willingness to learn
● Commitment to the school’s vision and ethos
● Basic literacy and numeracy and IT skills

▫How much time will it take? ▫

As a parent governor at Chapel-en-le-Frith Primary School, you will be expected to attend meetings for the full governing body (currently 6 per year) and, if applicable, committee meetings.
You will also be expected to be able to come into school to perform monitoring visits as required - probably once or twice a term depending on your role within the governing body. This is an important part of our work as governors and requires governors to visit the school during school hours.
If you would like to become a Governor, please collect an application pack from the school office, or text / send a message via Class Dojo and we’ll send a pack home with your child.

❕The closing date for self-nominations for parent governor is 12 noon on Tuesday 11th October 2022❕
