Remember that this Thursday evening (17th November 2016) is our Open Evening. Here are some things bear in mind when considering Charlesworth as the right school for your child:-

  • There is no geographical restriction or catchment area that prevents you applying to Charlesworth School
  • All parents who have applied to our school in recent years have been allocated a place so don’t be put off because you think that competition for spaces will limit your choice.
  • We pride ourselves on giving every child the best start to school. OFSTED recognised the OUTSTANDING practice in our Early Years and Foundation Stage because we recognise that your child is an individual and want them to see learning as an exciting adventure.

All the staff, governors and Friends of Charlesworth School are looking forward to welcoming you and sharing their valuable experience of our school community to help you make the best choice for your child.


See You There!

Charlesworth Y5/6 boys took part in the first stage of the Glossop Primary Schools football league last Friday. We were all thrilled to see an outstanding performance by every member of the team. Charlesworth dominated two of the matches that both ended in 3-0 victories. They were also in the lead of the other fixture until the opposition scored in the last minute to level the match. What a great start to the tournament…well done boys!

Charlesworth 3-0 Simmondley

St Luke’s 1-1 Charlesworth

Charlesworth 3-0 St Margaret’s

I’m sad to say that at the end of this term we will be saying goodbye to Silvana Grimsditch. Due to family commitment’s, she has decided to leave the school office for pastures new and will be sorely missed.

Silvana has been a big part of the life of Charlesworth School for many years and I am sure that you will all join me in thanking her and wishing her the best for the future.

At school we are currently looking at the value of PERSEVERENCE in assemblies and through other opportunities. This value was demonstrated abundantly when our juniors joined in the Quad Kids tournament at Glossopdale last week.

Both Lewis Fowle (Y6) and Hannah Rowson (Y5) competed in the 600m race even though it took every ounce of energy. They were a credit to the school in terms of their attitude and that of their team mates who enthusiastically supported them. We did not win the tournament but certainly demonstrated a fantastic attitude to facing challenges.

Well Done!

A week after our oldest children took their SATs tests, the pupils in Y2 were also doing SATs.

I have to say they were fantastic! They all tried their very best and showed an amazingly positive attitude to the challenges that they were faced with.

Well Done!!!

I want to congratulate all our Year Six pupils on the fantastic attitude that they have shown during this weeks SATs tests. Their determination to do their very best was brilliant to see and made Ms Howard and myself feel very proud of them.
