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.

More to follow next week .........

To show our support to parents and children across the county, and as a thank you for continuing to stay at home and save lives, Northamptonshire Police has shared a number of pictures to help keep children entertained at this difficult time. 

One of our officers has hand-drawn three pictures,  (bike.pdfofficer.pdfpcso.pdf), to help keep children entertained – all that is missing is some colour and a little artistic magic.

Once they are coloured in, children are encouraged to hang them in the windows of homes to support those working to keeping you safe.

Our officers will take photos of any pictures they see whilst out on patrol and tweet them. Parents with social media accounts can also take photos of their children with their picture and tag us on Twitter @NorthantsPolice.

Assistant Chief Constable Simon Blatchly, who is leading the Northamptonshire Police response to the COVID-19 pandemic, said: “With many of us parents ourselves and facing similar struggles, we can appreciate the difficulties which parents and carers face at this time.

“We would appreciate seeing the final pictures, so families are encouraged to put the pictures up in their windows to show support for Northamptonshire Police, the NHS and our Keyworker colleagues.

“Our officers on patrol will keep an eye out for the pictures, taking photos and tweeting them to our social media channels to recognise your children’s artistry – or if you’d like to tweet us your photo, we’d love that too!

“We just wanted to take a moment to say thanks and that we’re all in this together. We hope you and they enjoy this and please stay home and save lives.”

 
Northamptonshire Fire & Rescue Service The Fire and Rescue service has also requested that children & young people, up to the age of 16, whether at home or in school, send in some artwork showing a Firefighter in action. They would like young people to think about the tasks Fire & Rescue do and then come up with some art work and email it in. They plan to feature as many entries as possible on their social media platforms. Please share with your families. Further details can be found on the link below: http://www.northantsfire.gov.uk/2020/05/04/can-you-draw-a-firefighter/
 

School remains open to our key worker families during this difficult time. We are fortunate to have such extensive outside space and access to lots of arts and crafts materials. This week some of the children have been putting both to good use.
