A very warm welcome to Henry Chichele Primary School Early Years Foundation Stage September 2020/21

 The team have produced a video to introduce themselves and the new regimes for September 2020


Starting school can raise many questions for children and parents alike, and to try and answer some of your queries we have put together a Frequently Asked Questions section that you will find below. However, if you do have anything that you would like to know that has not already been addressed, please feel free to contact us.


Drop offs and Collections

Please drop your child/children off at 9.00am. Please bring your child to the marked drop-off point in the school car park and leave promptly adhering to social distancing protocol.

The school day ends at 2.45pm for reception children. The collection point is the same as the drop off point. Our priority is that children leave safely and with the correct adult. If you need to make alternative collection arrangements, contact the office prior to the end of the day to avoid any confusion at home time.   

Parents or childcare providers who are collecting older children at a later collection time may collect their child/children at 3.00pm.                               

How to Contact us

If you have anything that you wish to discuss please feel free to speak to us on the door, preferably at the end of the day. Alternatively, you can call the school office on 01933 352850 or our email addresses are as follows:



We will respond to emails and phone calls as soon as we can.

Please do not use Tapestry and a means of communication other than to comment on or add developmental observations of your child/children.

Henry Chichele Primary School operates a ‘paperless’ policy so we will issue any newsletters, curriculum information or diary dates via email. Don't forget to check the school 'next 7 days' section on a Sunday evening for events for the forthcoming week! Please look out for Reception specific activities on Tapestry memos. If you have not already done so, please can you give the School Office your email address so we can send the information to you. Also for any Reception specific information please check the ‘Henry Chichele Child’ on Tapestry. Guides for using Tapestry can be accessed from below.





Our PE/Outdoor learning days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please send your child/children in PE kit, suitable to the outside weather, on those days.

The Reception Team are looking forward to working with you and your children over the coming year and if you have any worries or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
