Many visitors come to school and we receive lots of compliments. These are a small selection that we have received over the last few months.
10.01.18 – Parent of a child moving out of area (via email)
[Child] has thoroughly enjoyed his time at Cheadle Heath Primary and I have been really impressed with all aspects of the school, the lovely, warm and friendly team in Reception and the way that they know and embrace every child individually, and the great communication and leadership from Ms Meekley and school overall. We are really quite sad to leave.

Thank-you for the informative newsletter – sounds like a very positive start, through: the first assembly; great attendance news; and such amazing KS2 pupil feedback on their curriculum at CHPS, praise indeed! Your calendar of events is always so helpful.
04.10.17 – email from a Head Teacher at The Kingsway
Just wanted to say thank you to your year 6 teacher and amazing students who were so welcoming last week. The children asked some great questions and [children] loved being back at Cheadle Heath. These three are doing great at Kingsway and are a credit to you and your school.
13.09.17 – new Chair of Governors visit
Just a quick email to say what a pleasure it was to be taken all around school and the nursery this morning. After less than a full week back in school everywhere is beautifully organised and inviting. The children are already responding so well to their new learning environments, as demonstrated by orderly classrooms and behaviour. They seem very happy to be back in CHPS, including the young new nursery children and others new to the area and school. This is a credit to the dedication of Team CHPS. In spite of dreadful weather the sun is definitely shining inside school! Keep up the great work and team effort, it bodes well for the 2017/18 school year!
28.07.17 – email after Leavers’ Assembly
I came along to the leavers assembly this morning – and just wanted to say what a brilliant performance by the Year 6 pupils!! It is a good job I took a tissue as I ended up in tears! As a parent, it is so lovely to see how proud the children are to have been a pupil at Cheadle Heath Primary and it is clear they have such fond and special memories of their time there, from nursery right up to present day.
15.06.17 – email following new intake meeting
I’m so glad I attended the new YR intake parents’ meeting this evening. It was really good to see such a well attended meeting. The invited parents were treated to a superbly prepared session with: informative packs backed up by the teachers’ well timed and illustrated presentation; bargain priced school uniform; school lunch tasters; classroom visits and outdoor/forest schools provision showing a wealth of exciting EYFS learning opportunities. All the EYFS staff had obviously worked so hard to show these areas at their best.
07.05.17 – email from a parent
I just wanted to send a massive thank you to you and the rest of your team for taking the time to arrange and attend Robinwood. [Child] had an amazing time and I thank you for the frequent pictures and messages which kept me well informed of the fun you were having and eased any concerns we had for her first trip away from home. Thanks again.
Just a quick email to say what a lovely Easter Bonnet Parade morning I had before the Easter holiday. It was such a pleasure to be part of the school’s now traditional annual event! As I arrived the KS2 children were busy pleasantly escorting adults to tables and very competently taking our coffee morning orders. As the young children entered the hall they looked wonderful wearing such an amazing variety of hats and nearly every one smiled and paraded confidently in front of their full to capacity audience.
Proud parents and grandparents were so positive about the work you do at CHPS and how dedicated you and your team are to providing such a wide range of opportunities for bringing out the best in their children. One grandad said “It was nothing like this in my day but I wish it had been!” A mum said she had visited another local school but discounted it immediately because the children were “so regimented and didn’t seem to be enjoying their learning”. Confidence, happiness and enjoyment of such wide-ranging learning opportunities are obviously really appreciated by these families. Well done Team CHPS!
28.03.17 – email from a Governor
Please convey my congratulations to the CHPS sports’ teams and those children rising to such amazing challenges at Chill Factor! What stars they are! Their achievements have also made them such good ambassadors for CHPS within the wide Greater Manchester area. The staff involved must feel very proud of the children and that all their hard work over time has been so successful. “Congratulations!” You all deserve a holiday!
19.01.17 – email from a Grandparent
… yesterday I was late picking [child] up from Craft Club. I just wanted to say how absolutely lovely the teacher was about it, not a cross word or cross look and completely made me feel so much better. [Child] was absolutely fine too, he said he’d been helping her to tidy up. Please could you convey my thanks to her…… All your staff that I’ve had any dealings with seem amazing. It’s all because of the leader I reckon !!!!!
