Welcome!

On behalf of the children, staff and Governors, I’d like to welcome you to Henry Chichele Primary School.

Henry Chichele Primary School is situated in the market town of Higham Ferrers.  We are set in extensive grounds, away from the main road.

We are a school which believes that every child and adult who is part of the school community has a right to feel happy, respected and valued.  We believe that all children deserve the best and our aim is to help them succeed by reaching their full potential in every area of school life.  We value the broad and balanced curriculum which our staff offers and all children are able to fully access not only academic, but creative and physical areas of the National Curriculum.

Each child is considered as a whole person; developing skills, concepts and attitudes necessary for the opportunities and experiences of the future.  We endeavour to motivate, support and inspire the children within our care and all successes are shared and celebrated.

The school was built in 2004 and has recently undergone extensive building works to make the school two form entry. The Planned Admission Number (PAN) was increased from 30 to 60 for the academic year 2014/15; we expect to be fully two form entry by 2020/21. The school comprises 14 classrooms, a fabulous multi-use room,  a large central hall, studio, offices and staff room. 

The school grounds are secure, set with trees, hedges and fencework.  There is a pond area where the children can observe wildlife, outdoor shelters and a new 'all weather' area for the children to play and execise on. 

Please find the link to our Prospectus here. We hope that you will read it to gain a sense of the value we place in each child and our desire to ensure standards, in all areas, remain as high as possible within a safe, secure, happy and caring community school.

Stephen McClymont
Head Teacher

Welcome to Henry Chichele Primary School.

In these strange and uncertain times we are not able to currently welcome visitors through our doors. So, to give you a 'flavour' of us we have put together a series of short video clips which we hope you will find helpful and informative. If you require any further information or simply want to ask us a question then please do not hesitate to give us a call on 01933 352850.

Reception

We have two purpose built reception classrooms affectionately called 'Bananas' and 'Strawberries'. Whilst the children are registered in two classes there is daily 'free flow' between both classrooms and the outdoor areas that they have access to. We recently created a 'Forest School area' which our newest children are thoroughly enjoying!

Check if you or your child has coronavirus symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result.

Main symptoms

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature– this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough– this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste– this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

 What to do if you have symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

  • Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
  • Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.

Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.

 

We hope you continue to enjoy these stories read by our staff.

Coming soon! We are intending to dedicate a page just for the Library (accessible through the class page menu) which will contain a wealth of information about reading and our Library. We shall also be regularly updating our storytime sessions for you to share as often as you like with your child/ren.
