Year 6 Open Evening
The Year 6 Open Evening is scheduled for Thursday 28th September 2017, commencing at 6.00 pm. We look forward to welcoming parents and carers and prospective Year 7 students to a presentation in the Main Hall. There will also be the opportunity to visit the different subject areas of the Academy.
Displays of work and subject information will be supplemented by students engaged in normal Academy work. You will have the opportunity to talk to staff and equip yourself to be able to make an informed choice for your child’s education next year.
Posters and information about the evening will be circulated to all of our feeder schools next week, and can be viewed here.
Can we take this opportunity to mention that parking is difficult at the Academy so would ask you to lift share, walk or at least arrive early to avoid problems.
For further information please contact the Academy using the Contact Us page.
We are pleased to welcome everyone back to the Academy for the new academic year and hope that all new students are settling in well.
Year 7 students now have access to our Show My Homework system using their academy e-mail address and their usual login password. Parents of Year 7 students will be sent their login for this shortly.
If you have any questions, please contact us via our new contact e-mail - ContactUs@chellaston.derby.sch.uk - or by telephone on (01332) 702502.

Thursday 21st September at 6pm
There is an important meeting for all Year 7 parents and carers on Thursday 21st September.
The Partners In Progress meeting will take place from 6:00pm until 7:45pm and begin with a presentation from Mr Gaiderman and other members of the senior Leadership team. It will reiterate how setting is organised and answer any other questions you may have with regards to Show My Homework or the new Doddle system we are using for assessment.
Over the summer holidays, Chellaston Academy and the Year 11 and Year 13 students found out their GCSE and A-Level results.
Once again the academy was pleased to see so many happy faces on the results days and enjoyed another successful year in terms of the grades and levels that our students achieved.

Year 7 Update
Year 7 Information Event
** Show My Homework - having problems logging in? **
We have made some necessary changes on our system today, which will affect external services needing access in to our computer systems. The changes have all been successfully completed, but can take a few hours to filter out over the Internet.
In addition to this, Show My Homework need to change a setting on their system too, which we are still waiting for them to complete. Until they complete this change, students and staff will not be able to login to Show My Homework.
Staff are aware of this and will take this into account if students have not been able to complete their set homework.
Message from the Headteacher
I feel privileged, having been appointed in September 2015, to be only the third Headteacher of this Academy since it opened in 1977. The ongoing continuity that this provides has given the Academy a distinctive and strong ethos in which we expect all students, regardless of ability, to maximise their progress which will lead to high levels of achievement.
We want everyone to be proud to be a part of our community. We want our students to feel safe and that they belong. This can be achieved through high expectations of both students and staff both in terms of professional standards and good behaviour which lead to students having the right to learn and staff having the right to teach.
