What do I do if my child is ill?

If your child is absent from school, please contact us as soon as you can. For safety reasons, we operate a thorough absense monitoring procedure, so early notification is crucial.

How do I apply for a place at Chestnut Street?

Admission into our Reception Unit in September is the responsibility of the Local Authority (LA). Online applications can be completed usually around November and you will receive notification of places March/April.  During other times of the year pupils may be admitted by contacting the school office and in consultation with the Head Teacher, subject to the schools ability to meet the needs of the child and the availability of places.
