Story time with Mrs Hope
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.
