Welcome to Chapel End Primary School & Nursery

New Guidance re: Outbreak Management of COVID19 (17.9.20)

With an alarming rise in figures across St Helens Borough, St Helens Council has agreed a number of additional measures to try and stop the rate of the community transmission that is currently causing the significant rise in infections. 

These measures include:  

  • Parents should wear face coverings when they arrive at the school gates to pick up or drop off their children and not gather in groups of more than six at the school gates. 
  • Temporarily suspend care home visits. 
  • Reinforcing the need for staggered drop off/pick up times for schools.  
  • A halt to any temporary event licences being approved to reduce the possibility of groups of people gathering.  
  • Reviewing the council’s powers to be able to take action against non-compliance with the current legislation.  

 The public are urged to continue to keep following these four key ways of protecting each other.  

  • Reduce your social contact with people from outside your household and reduce the number of groups you meet.  
  • Keep at least 2m apart from anyone from outside your household  
  • Wear a face mask in enclosed spaces or when maintaining 2m distances isn’t possible  
  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds  

You can find out more about both at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-getting-tested or on 119 and although there is capacity issues we would encourage people if they are unsuccessful first time to leave it a few hours and try to rebook later in the day.   

Please do not visit your GP, St Helens Urgent Treatment Centre or A&E if you have symptoms that are manageable and cannot get a test.   

For more advice, particularly if you need support with food and medicine or if you need to isolate, visit: www.sthelens.gov.uk/coronavirus or call St Helens Contact Cares on 01744 676767.  


Coronavirus Update September 9th 2020

Before we finished for Summer we posted the arrangements for school reopening in September (you can  access this information by clicking on the tab at the bottom of the page). Please take particular note of the arrangements for dropping off and picking up. The Local Authority have also provided a letter for information which can be accessed by clicking on the tab below and they have set up a new website which they have asked us to signpost to you. The site is called 'Back to School' and can be accessed by clicking the link.


At Chapel End we have a simple vision for our school:

To see our children leave us as healthy, happy, well-rounded individuals who:

have respect for the world and understand their responsibilities as a global citizen in ensuring it is conserved for future generations; are aware of their place in society and their  responsibility to contribute positively to it; are polite, well mannered and helpful; have respect and tolerance for others and their beliefs & cultures and possess the  skills and knowledge that they require to enable them to continue their learning and achieve their full potential.

If you would like your child to become part of our vision, please explore the website to get a flavour of how, with the  help and support of our parents and the community, we  achieve this.

OFSTED's view

 The school is a warm and friendly place. Pupils love learning here. I saw lots of lovely displays of artwork and extended writing. Pupils are polite, welcoming and respectful. They behave very well and work hard in lessons. One pupil commented, ‘Everybody is kind and friendly and teachers help us to learn.’ Pupils take pride in their work and many pupils were keen to discuss their work with me. They participate in a wide range of extra-curricular activities such as art, choir, sport and residential trips. The pupils I spoke with have high aspirations and are keen to go to University.
