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

It is with the deepest regret that we shall be closed to ALL pupils on Friday, 29th June 2018. Whilst still to be confirmed, a sprinkler head went off unexpectedly in the rear extension earlier today and despite the very fast response of the fire brigade who assisted in isolating both water and electrics in a matter of minutes; this has caused extensive water damage to this area.

Staff will be meeting with insurers tomorrow to assess the damage and formulate a plan of action. We will, of course, update you before the end of the day via our usual communication methods (e-mail, facebook, school web-site) with arrangements for Monday, 2nd July onwards.

Whilst we have reinstated power to the front and the original school building so that our phone system is fully operational once more, we politely request that parents refrain from ringing tomorrow please; we anticipate being extremely busy ringing out. Thank you for your assistance; it is very much appreciated.

What a busy and productive year our Year 5 children have had working alongside our partners at Moulton College, Northampton! We are delighted to have re-established our pond area from the wilderness it had become whilst the builders were on site expanding the school. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with the College and are grateful for their support.

A massive THANK YOU to building merchant HIGGINS, Irthlingborough who very kindly supplied materials to help support the project.

A HUGE thank you to our friends from the Community Support from Tesco Store, Wellingborough. On a very cold and damp Wednesday during the Easter break they kindly gave up their time to help clear debris and vegetation from around the pond area. In a few hours we managed to not only fill a 14 yard skip but reveal much of the 'lost' landscaping in this corner of the grounds. Slowly, but surely we are 'winning the battle' to restore this area, opening up for the children to be inquisitive learners once more. There was certainly much excitement this week when some of them were introduced to our pond inhabitants, who despite all the recent building work continue to thrive!

Over the coming months (weather permitting) we shall be forging ahead with not only the pond refurbishment, but also redevelopment of the right hand side of the grounds between the workshop to create an 'all weather' play area which will also include a path between. Funding permitting we shall be overhauling the existing path that currently runs through the pond area, along the rear boundary and linking it to the new path in the 'all weather' area. Not only will this reflect the high standards of decor we strive to achieve internally, this will also give us endless opportunities to bring the curriculum outside; maths, english, science, geography, music and beyond.

We shall keep you updated as works progress!

Following careful consideration the decision has been made to CLOSE the school for Friday, 2nd March 2018. The adverse weather conditions look set to continue overnight and into Friday. The safety of our pupils, parents and staff remain our priority.

Thank you for your continued support.

So the children left for the day on Tuesday and were simply AMAZED to find (according to them), that the magic fairies had been in overnight and restored some of our previous graphics on a much grander scale along with some new features. There has been much buzz and excitement for the rest of the week. We look forward to sharing our values, aims and code of conduct with the many visitors we get to the school. If you would like to come and see them for yourself, please don't hesitate to ask.

What a fabulous morning the children had today; the last day of term.

Thanks to the efforts of our Parent Teacher Association, Henry's Friends, the children had the opportunity to chat to Father Christmas and his elves today to remind him of what is on their list this year. They all came away with a little treat and some food for the reindeer. Even Miss Farrar took the opportunity to drop in!
