Open Afternoon Information
Thank you for showing an interest in our school and enquiring about Open Sessions. Due to the current situation with Covid-19, we are doing things differently this year and asking prospective parents to, ideally, tour the school virtually. We are in the process of setting up a link on our school website that will enable parents to watch a virtual tour around the school and hope that this, alongside the prospectus and Early Years Handbook (also available on the school website), will give all parents the information they need to make an informed choice. The link should be available by the end of Term 1 on our school website www.chislethoathfederation.co.uk .
However, we have decided to offer a couple of actual Open Afternoons, after the children have left the school site. These will be held on Fridays, October 2nd and 16th 2020, 4pm - 5pm. We ask that parents visit by appointment only, and up to 2 adults per family (no children, please). The back gate to the playground will be opened just before 4pm and we ask that all parents, who have made an appointment, socially distance on the playground, wearing face coverings. The tour will start with a short address from the Headteacher, Mrs A Noake and then parents will be sent in different directions to access the classrooms. We ask that everyone is considerate and avoids congregating in groups in classrooms and refrains from touching any surfaces (doors will be propped open). We have chosen to offer Fridays for these sessions, as this enables us to have time to deep clean the school and is then a couple of days before the children return on Monday morning. The PTFA have kindly offered to attend these sessions and provide a friendly chat and cuppa.
If you would like to attend one of these Open Sessions, it is vital that you contact the school on 01227 860295 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and make an appointment, as numbers are restricted. Parents will be politely turned away if they have not made a prior appointment.

Life is a wonderful journey of learning. Chislet School nurtures all individuality and growth through a supportive and caring family. Everyone brings something special to our school. Using our Christian values we aim to nurture what they have brought, encourage it to transform and watch it flourish within our community and beyond.
Welcome to Our School
Chislet Church of England Primary School is a small village school set in the beautiful fields and farm lands between Canterbury and Thanet.
As a small school we are very proud of the family environment we work very hard to create; a close and supportive community where children can feel safe to develop their skills and further their learning and where all members of our community can support each other. We ensure that our vision is met using Christian values of RESPECT, TRUST, CARE and PRAISE. These can be found within our procedures, interactions and every day life.
Please enjoy searching through our Website to find out about the many wonderful things our children achieve.
Extract from most recent inspection.
“The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.”
“Many commentated favourably on the caring, family atmosphere of this small school. One wrote, ‘We are privileged that our child attends such a special place where their academic and emotional needs are met with such care and attention.’
