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.
It is currently a community one form entry primary co-educational school for children aged 4 – 11 but we are set to extend to two form entry from September 2016. The Local Authority has therefore increased our Planned Admission number for Reception Class from 30 to 60 for the academic year 2014/15 onwards.
This school was built in 2004 and comprises 7 classrooms, a large central hall, music room, offices and staff room. A double temporary classroom will house the additional classes over the next two years while the school is remodelled and extended.
The school grounds are secure, set with trees, hedges and fencework. There is a pond area where the children can observe wildlife and a trim-trail for the children to execise on.
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.
Below is a link to our Prospectus which we hope you will read 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.
After weeks of inactivity due to inclement weather, yet more planning delays and the discovery of unrecorded pipes, we were delighted to see the steel structure arrive this week;swiftly followed by the crane to piece together the frame. This week the site has been a hive of activity and the children have been fascinated to see how quickly the framework rise like the phoenix from the ashes!
Next week the bricklayers will be arriving to start infilling the structure which will rapidly see us take the build onwards and upwards.
A camera has been added to the site to record progress and we hope to be able to share this with you all in the coming weeks.
The Reception class were thrilled to be visited by the Site Foreman this week. They had lots of questions to ask about the vehicles being used outside and how the building was going to be constructed. Well done Reception for your amazing enthusiasm.
The foundations were all completed this week and work is continuing to prepare for the arrival of the steel structure.
