Please be aware that school is open as normal from Monday 5th March. Apologies for any inconvenience last week.
After consulting with other local schools, we have taken the decision to close on Friday 2nd March due to the adverse weather conditions. Please be aware that any decision to close is not taken lightly and made on the basis of ensuring the safety of pupils, staff and parents. Hopefully, school will be open again on Monday as usual.
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.
Over the past few months, a number of new staff have arrived at Charlesworth School. I would like to welcome them to the team and will be updating the staffing page in the coming weeks so the children will need to sharpen their drawing pencils. The new arrivals are as follows:-
Emma Copas -Breakfast Club Coordinator and Senior Lunchtime Organiser in the Juniors
Pam Moss – Breakfast Club Assistant and Lunchtime Organiser in the Juniors
Lisa Shaw – Breakfast Club Assistant
Michael Moss – Wildlife Explorer Club Assistant
Charlotte Kinnersley – School Business Assistant
